Hello everyone! I have been reading your threads long before my family decided to homeschool, and figured now might be a great time to ask for advice.
Background: I am a tenth grade (and 2E) student who has been in brick and mortar schools until now. I am interested in majoring in Linguistics or becoming a EFL teacher, but I also really enjoy the process of learning in and of itself. Currently, I am taking a dual enrollment Spanish class I'm not worried about, two one-hour lessons each week on italki in Spanish, two or three half-hour lessons a week in ASL (plus homework, and I consider ASL my relaxation language more than anything else) and approximately three one-hour lessons a week in Bahasa Indonesia (also known as Indonesian, plus homework). This is only a slight increase beyond what I had been doing on top of public school. I do have duolingo and a grammar book available for Bahasa Indonesia but have not been using them, largely because of lack of motivation. My levels are intermediate in Spanish, late beginner in ASL, and completely new to Indonesian as of this summer. My family is very supportive in every way, but not interested in teaching, grading, etc.
I know I can count on a grade and credits for the dual enrollment course, but what of these other activities could be considered for high school credit, and how would you have them graded? What would you consider sufficient progress for an Indonesian credit? Alternatively, since I also regularly listen to linguistics podcasts and attend linguistics events, would you consider it fair to merge these activities into a course called something like "Exploration of World Languages 1"?
Additionally, my family will be going on a week long trip to Germany this summer, and I would be interested in studying some German both for the trip and because it is an important world language with an interesting relationship to both English and Indonesian. The only synchronous course I have come across for high school German (besides WTMA, which conflicts with Spanish class) is Potter's School, which is not something my family would like me to do if there are other options due to the religious nature of the organization. Does anyone know of any other synchronous (preferably secular) classes for German in the 2021-2022 school year, or have any recomendations for an italki/preply/similar tutor?
Also, do any of you have experience with kids studying many languages at this age, or a similar student I could talk to?
Sorry for the long post, all advice is welcome. Thank you all so much!
