What If Biblical Language Students Asked These Questions?

I wonder what Hebrew and Greek professors might say if a potential student asked them these three questions:
1. What's your favorite book on pedagogy? 
2. What's the last book you read on second language acquisition?
3. What do you think people do with Greek or Hebrew after your course? What percentage of them are using Greek or Hebrew (beyond possibly doing a very basic word study) three years after taking their last Greek or Hebrew course in seminary? What about five years? 
Honestly, I'm not optimistic about the answers to any of these questions––wherever you study.
