At Springfield High, three fourths of the male and one half of the female students speak a foreign language. If there are two-thirds as many male as female students at the high school, what fraction of the students speak a foreign language?

* \frac{1}{3}
* \frac{2}{3}
* \frac{1}{2}
* \frac{4}{3}
* \frac{3}{5}
