    I'm studying AS Spanish, not doing too well though I'm trying to get a C by the end of the year.
    I love learning languages and I know I'm capable of it with the right teaching but my teacher is useless and though I'm trying my best to self-teach, I'm not having much luck as I don't have the resources. Next year if I took Spanish I would definitely get this teacher again, so I want to drop it as I won't get a good grade and I'm getting As in my other subjects so it seems idiotic for me to drop one of them to take it, and I don't want the workload of four A2 subjects.
    At university, however, I intend on taking extra-curricular language classes as languages interest me a lot, and I'm also interested in learning more languages after that.
    Is it stupid to drop Spanish for a year and then pick it back up again at university purely because of poor teaching quality? There's no way I can have another teacher as my teacher is head of department and teaches all A Level classes.

    It's not stupid at all to drop it and then pick it up again in Uni. At Uni they offer all sorts of levels, several of my friends took a beginner's module in our first year. There's no need to worry or think that you won't be able to do it just because you dropped it for A2

    m doing AS spanish and i'll probably drop it next year because i find it so hard and like you, have an awful teacher.
    I'd probably look at the uni's you want to go to and see if you need AS and A2 spanish to study there. But to be honest, you could always raise some money and go to spain the summer before uni, and learn it! Spanish is a language so it's very easy to catch-up on, even if you don't do it for A2!
