When should I do AP Spanish?

I am a 10th grader and soon we would have to choose our courses. I have already planned to do 3 AP courses next year: AP English 3, AP Chemistry, and AP Psychology. I have a choice if I want to do AP Spanish; however, I don't want to make it too tough for myself, so I was thinking to do it in Senior and rather do an engineering course. However, it could end up bad because then I would stop Spanish for a year, and as soon as the course starts we have to do the AAPPL test. It would also show consistency if I choose to do AP Spanish next year.

If you want to do AP Spanish, it would definitely be harder to take it if you waited until senior year. Speaking from experience (I didn't do a language my junior year), I can say that it's really challenging to catch up after you barely speak a language for a year. I think, if your school offers it next year and you don't really hate Spanish, do AP Spanish your junior year and maybe do the engineering course your senior year.
