    Spanish is the only subject I've always enjoyed since year 7 and it was my best grade at AS levels despite the fact that I put in so much more work for biology. I'm fascinated by languages and am interested in learning Spanish and a new language at university.

    But sometimes I feel like it's not important or won't get me anywhere because so many other people speak more than one foreign language from being brought up in different countries around the world. I don't feel like I'm doing anything extraordinary, for instance, when I hear someone studying physics or English literature, I'm automatically impressed, but for some reason I don't get that with languages. What are your opinions?

    Language degrees... I don't have a clue if they're impressive (there is not a single degree on this planet that makes me feel impressed ), but they're extremely employable. Britain has a skills deficit when it comes to languages anyway.

    Plus they're certainly more employable than English Lit... from what I've heard English Lit grads tend to have a hard time.
