I would say yes if you think you can handle it or you want to major in cultural studies or work in spain/latin america or you are in a predonimantly latino community.

best i can say is that a lot of colleges want to see 4 years of a language on an application, so if you're planning on applying to top schools, you should make sure that you'll have taken 4 years of Spanish by the end of senior year. if this would take you beyond that, then i think it's fine to ignore it, but if you need this to get to 4 units (however your school does it—with block schedules it might only take two years, but at most places it'll take 4), you should take it.

I will have taken 4 years either way wondered if final year honors was worth it
