    I am doing A level Spanish and Latin. I'm not sure if this has any bearing but i got 8A*s and 3As at GCSE. I definitely want to do a degree in Spanish, but with another language.

    Do I choose:
    a) Arabic - pros: not many people have it; cons: i am girl (not sure how it would be on my year abroad) and anxious/not sure how i would find learning a new alphabet. + arabic as a language varies dramatically across the globe

    b) Italian - pros: I learnt french for 10 years, and am doing Latin and Spanish at A level so shouldn't be too hideous to learn. cons: I feel like it wouldn't help me get a job since there are more people doing italian?

    c) Latin -pros: I'm doing it for A level, love it. cons: you cannot use it in the world. it is a 'dead language'.

    Any advice from people who have done any of the degrees with the above language would be so so helpful and appreciated. Thank you!!!

    If you love Latin, do it. There's no point taking up a language you don't enjoy, most people who do that end up dropping it. You certainly should not take on a beast like Arabic unless you are totally committed.
