    I would say in this day and age that an extra language is essential. Especially a language such as Spanish. With such a degree, you could open up a host of opportunities in Latin America for economic/finance/banking related jobs and internships.

    The language is always a huge boost.

    The benefit of doing a straight Economics degree over an Economics with Spanish degree, in terms of Economics knowledge, is pretty negligible. Often you'll do the same amount of Economics, but your 'electives' will instead have to be taken in your language (e.g. Nottingham).

    As above, the language will boost career prospects and stop you from being disadvantaged in a world where so many foreigners speak two languages.
