    I'm getting ready to begin my postgrad courses for LSE- I'm going into Social Policy and Development.

    I saw that you can take a Masters of Foreign Language Certification course 2 hours a week for twenty weeks.

    Being American, I barely speak conversational Spanish and know the basics of Korean because I lived there a couple years. I want to go into international diplomacy of some sort- maybe UN related work. Is it worth it to take this additional certification program to bump up my Spanish skills and enhance my employability? Of is this just another attempt to burn my already dwindeling funds?

    I am not sure 2 hours a week for 20 weeks will get you up to the level of Spanish needed for international diplomacy. With the 215 quid it costs you could just put it towards going to the Spanish countryside (smaller number of English speakers) after the degree for a month and you will learn a much more useful amount!
