    Oh cool! Did/do you go to uni in the UK or there? Do you speak any other languages? Is it really cold there all the time? 'Scuse my nosiness :P
    I've graduated at Moscow, got red diploma in Law, now I postgraduate, study for PhD at the same place.
    English is the only foreign language I speak. Some of my relatives speak 9-12.
    This summer was hot. Right now it isn't so cold, as it was last week.

    Cool! English is a pretty hard language to learn though. And speaking 9-12 languages, that's my aim

    I would definitely say German. It's the most spoken language in the European Union and is very widely spoken as a second language across Eastern Europe.
    Deutschland also seems to be about the only country that hasn't suffered too seriously from the economic crash (or at least has coped with it best)!

    Best of luck in whatever you choose.

    I do russian at A-level, but I've been doing it since year 7. You might find it a bit hard to pick up from scratch and to bring it up to a-level standards, because there's a completely different alphabet, but I love the language and its so much fun to learn, so I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it! I haven't studied Spanish or German, but out of the two, Spanish is probably more widely spoken across the world, although in the EU, German is spoken more widely... It really depends on what you want to use it for.

    Good luck choosing
