    If you speak it at home, then it'll be even easier for you. You can easily learn Spanish at home in your own time if you want to.

    I'm not sure about GCSE changes as I'm currently in my 4th year at uni
    thats sick , how is uni going and how did u find A-levels, hard ?

    Pick French. If you have family who can speak it you are very advantaged as they can look over your coursework and check for accuracy mistakes etc. If you didn't know French or know anyone who did I would seriously have recommended you not.

    Uni's alright. Quite stressful with all my final year exams at the moment.

    I did French and German to A Level (Spanish wasn't offered at my school) and I really enjoyed both of them, although I did prefer German. I got an A in both and am currently doing Chinese with Japanese at uni

    IS there any way at all you could do both at once? Like by begging the school? I know that's a long shot but eh

    If you go onto the exam board's website that you sit languages with, you might find some documents detailing the new GCSE spec and such.

    Ultimately choose what you will enjoy the most, and GCSE is never really the greatest test of ability in the language - it honestly is just the ability to parrot - but you can do well in either if you just try hard enough. I never really tried and I achieved a D in German GCSE, but now (after actually trying hard) for my German AS Level I'm predicted about an A.

    But yes honestly whichever one YOU want to do the most.
