At the moment I'm not entirely sure on what type of job I'd like to have when I'm older but would like something involving English. I'm thinking of maybe teaching it as a foreign language (so I may get the opportunity to travel?), magazine journalism or regular teaching but I'd like my options to be kept open and have a range of considerably versatile subjects. At the college I'll be attending we can take 4 a levels but drop one at AS. I'm also hoping to go to a well respected university after. Which subjects would you recommend that I take in college?

Take subjects that you're good at, and you enjoy, however, if you want to attend a reputable University... I guess you'd want to stay away from... unrespected subjects
Especially considering you don't know what you want to do in the future

Seconded, do what you enjoy! A note - English Lit is almost always better thought of than English Lang as an A-level, so I'd definitely recommend taking that. A lot of English-type courses don't require certain A-levels (other than English Lit, please correct me if I'm wrong) and so you should be okay whatever you pick. Have a look at some potential courses and see what type of A-levels they want, and see if it matches up with your interests

English literature, English Language, Math/Science, any subject you are really good at

FINALLY!!! Whenever there are threads like these, they always seem to be about mathsy or sciencey things, which isn't really what I'm too interested in, but English is a whole other story!
You could try subjects like English Language/Literature, Philosophy and Ethics/RS, a modern foreign language etc.
