You can transfer skills to another job. This is what I am doing at the moment.
Luckily I made a (somewhat) compromise, maybe even a better compromise, I took a German language beginners course at my university and at the end of the year I was awarded a certificate of higher education at distinction level. Therefore in other words, not only was I studying 2 subjects that I love (History and Politics) I also studied another subject that I loved too, German, so i'm getting the best of both worlds as opposed to had I just chosen history and German excluding politics. And since technically a certificate of higher education is equivalent to the first year of university apparently, I'm not sure about how valuable it is in employ-ability situations but I guess that means I kind of did 2 1'st year of universities in one year?
But yeah, modern languages are a high demand subject when it comes to teaching I think, and if i'm not mistaken the government wants more youngsters to learn foreign languages from a young age, and these type of situations cut people off from achieving it. No one expects an English student to study a language such as Russian, Polish, Chinese, Korean, Japanese etc at A level or GCSE level because most of the time the most common languages taught in England are French and Spanish. So if they allow people to start from abinito level on languages like Japanese, Chinese etc, then why not for the commonly taught languages too?
Don't regret it at all - I really enjoyed studying it, and came out with a good job at the end of it.
