Why can I do with knowing 2 languages?

Im 13 taking AP Spanish. I have been studying Spanish at a K-8 for around 9 years. We are taking the AP test this year. After middle school we have the opportunity to go to a high school and start taking college courses for credits too receive are translating degree. I will be not attending that high school. What should I do with the 9 years of knowledge after middle school?

Thank you comment icon Hello Mac! may jobs or corporations do not really look at your transcripts to see if you took Spanish courses, usually they will perform a test to see if you are really fluent in the language. Daniela Berlanga

Hello Mac,
In addition to Samar's suggestion of becoming a translator or transcriber, I would like to add that there are an immense amount of careers that rely on multilingual personnel.
Any career in hospitality can be a great choice for people who speak multiple languages and who wish to potentially even live in different countries. Same goes for general business careers in global companies. Of course you can specialise in the actual language part and become a translator, transcriber or foreign language teacher, but if you have other areas of interest (such as finance, technology, science, sports, politics or international relations etc.) you being multilingual can be one of the most distinguishing factors in job interviews.
I am trilingual and I have worked in various countries around Europe in logistics, project management, sales, technology and even as an entrepreneur - with multiple languages at your disposal, your career options are endless.
All the very best to you,
Yasmin
