    Hi,
    I was studying French and Spanish at university but have dropped out at the end of this first year. It was far too expensive for me and I didn't really enjoy it.
    I'm stuck trying to find an alternative way of getting fluent and obtaining some qualifications of the same standard as a degree. At the moment I only have a-levels to rely on.
    Any help? :/

    As for becoming fluent, one way you could do this which wouldn't really use up all of your money is by becoming an au pair. The best way to learn languages is to actually be in the country having to speak them. Also, you wouldn't have to pay for accommodation etc because of the fact that you are working for the family as they allow you to stay in their home.
