    I'd say you've got a fair chance of doing well. Do consider getting a private tutor, if possible. I think it may help with the extra sessions with a tutor too, to help you develop your Spanish skills (speaking, listening, reading and writing).

    Of all the languages to learn, Spanish looks like one of the easiest, if not the easiest for an English speaker to learn.

    I speak (spoke) German to quite a good level (97% at AS) which I found fairly easy. I looked at Spanish and I think, with the same intensity of learning, getting to the same level would take a fraction of the time.

    If you're good with languages, it would be easy.

    If not, or you don't know if you're good with languages, then Spanish is your best bet. The only ones I think might be easier are Dutch (because half of it is English) and/or Norwegian (maybe less so. To me a lot of it makes sense, but I already speak German. The vocab and grammar looks simple though). Not significantly easier though, so I'd give Spanish a bash.

    Thanks for your input everyone. I'm pretty sure that it's from the same language family as French as well, so as long as I prepare I should be alright!
