    I speak some German and Spanish, although I'm not fluent - would like to be though. What about you?
    I know some French and Spanish. I also know a tiny bit of Italian and would like to become more fluent in it, but for now I have to concentrate on French and Spanish.

    I'm so jealous of everyone who knows what they want to do. Even though i'm well into my twenties and i've just graduated, I haven't got a clue. Absolutely nothing comes to mind.
    I'm sure you'll think of something. Would you be interested in working with animals or children or even starting your own business? Would you prefer an office job or something more hands-on? There are a lot of things to consider.

    I have no idea what I want to do either; the fact that I don't know kind of frustrates me to be honest.

    I understand. Same with me. Perhaps we will learn other languages such as Italian in the future!

    At what level are you studying German? GCSE? A-Level?

    Have you ever considered learning French? ("The mainstream language", haha.)

    I'd like to teach English as a foreign language. It's not really a job that pays well, and I think that my parents would rather I pursue a career in translation or interpreting, but I think the satisfaction of watching my students progress and grow in confidence would be worth it

    Studying at GCSE but taking it onto A-Level. What about you with your languages?

    I did do French earlier on in secondary school, but I never really clicked with it. Not sure why but some languages, German, Spanish, etc I really enjoy but then I just didn't like French... Perhaps cos I was forced to learn it at such an early age (year 3 I think it was) by the time I picked my GCSEs I was bored of it

    I was thinking about that! What country would you teach in?

    It's always better having someone teaching you who is from that country, if you know what I mean. My French teacher is French and I prefer that in a lot of ways because we are 100% sure that she knows what she is on about and she can also teach us how to get our French accents exactly right.

    The only thing is she forgets to put accents on sometimes (eg. é, à, etc.) because she is not used to writing extremely accurately. However, in English we don't have to worry about any accents on the letters!

    I am currently studying at GCSE-level, but hopefully I will take at least one language to A-Level because languages are my favourite subjects.

    A career with animals. Either a vet nurse or a zoologist/wildlife biologist. I want to help animals, yet at the same time I want to study and observe wild animals in their natural habitats.
    That's a nice idea. What are your favourite animals that you would prefer to work with?

    Virology because I am fascinated by microbiology and by viruses in particular. I want to be involved in research in that field.

    A few people have said this. I hope you get into that field; it seems quite fascinating.

    Awesome! I'm studying for a degree in French, so if I could get a teaching job in France that would be amazing, but I have no idea how I'd go about it! There's also a lot of demand in countries like China, so that might be interesting as well. I had a French teacher who was French as well and I agree with you, it was a massive help for us. French is a tough language! I'm definitely going to have to brush up on my English grammar a bit, but it's something I kind of enjoy anyway, so it shouldn't be too hard

    Do you have a particular country in which you'd like to teach?

    No, I don't really know… I don't actually know at all what career I want to pursue, but this was just an idea.

    Probably France or Spain since they are the languages that I am studying for GCSE (I hope I will take one to A-Level too).

    However, I would consider Italy because some family lives there, but I don't know a lot of Italian so I would have to really knuckle down to learn more in order to be fluent in this language.

    Hello! Personally I have no interest going into teaching. However I am planning to do my masters degree in France, I think having some education in the country you want to work in should help significantly as it will show you have a good understanding of French life and are committed.
    (Also degrees in France (non private universities) are cheap as ****!

    Hello! That actually sounds like a really good idea... and I love a good bargain Just out of interest, do you know whereabouts you're planning on studying in France yet and what the application process would be like for studying at a French university?

    If I became a vet nurse, I would likely specialise with horses. If zoolgist, I would mainly want to study any type of mammal (my dream is to go out to Africa)

    Hello! Yeah I plan (if I do go to France) to study at the University of Lyon (I think it's Lyon 5, big city French universities seem to split their campuses into numbers ) to do a Master in Genetics. It's a 2 year course and it's only 350 euro! (which seems about the normal rate) I think it's 350 euro per year.

    I think you just apply as you would for postgraduates in the UK, I'm not entirely sure on the process yet as it's still a couple of years away and I need to brush up on my French :P I know there is a UCAS system for postgraduate but I have no idea if it includes universities outside of England. the course is also 50% taught in English, you can get ones 100% taught in English or not taught in English at all.

    That's great! I've been to Lyon already and it's a lovely city. If I'm lucky maybe I'll get to do my year abroad there!

    That's really good value for money as well... I must admit, I'm kind of jealous of the French system Like you, I'm still a couple of years away from graduating, but you've really helped me out at lot. Merci pour tout et bonne chance! :france:
