    I studied it and once at a university interview the interviewer commented how impressive it was that i have 3 different languages at gcse, so i recon languages can be quite helpful.

    I study languages at university (French and Spanish) and love it. GCSE won't really get you to a decent level, especially if you don't go abroad to speak it. However, if you choose to do language at A-Level, you definitely come out with a good level that makes it possible to have actual conversations, not something you've just rehearsed.

    Languages are so fab though - not only can you talk to so many more people, but you can access a whole new range of music, literature, film, thought, history, culture...
