    Basically, I have accepted an offer for a place at Canterbury for a PGCE Primary with MFL and now I can't decide which language to do.

    I have the right qualifications to do French, German, Italian or Spanish, but at the time, I picked Italian because it was the language I was currently working with. Now I'm thinking I would prefer to do German, as it is the language I have always preferred and I don't want to lose it.

    Which language do you think would be better to specialise in at PGCE? Realistically, I'm going to pick German or Spanish, but I'm interested to see what other people think is best.

    Spanish: German is going 'out of fashion'

    French is still going to be everywhere though, but it seems round here that for schools (state ones) that offer two languages, it's French and Spanish, not French and German.

    Edit: I've just realised this is for primary schools :p: I don't really know then, but surely french is more useful for the kids as you can almost guarantee continuation into Secondary school.

    I'd do French because it seems like most primary schools teach French as their language so it would put you in a good position employment wise.

    Yeah French is most likely to be useful, but then, will I stand out more at interview if I have done another language?
