    Hey guys,
    I know it's early on but I'm in year 12, currently studing Spanish, French, Latin and Politics. I am interested in starting a language like Italian from scratch, alongside Spanish, at university (not certain) and was just wondering if this would be too difficult?
    I love Italy and have been there several times, but would it be ideal to take French/Latin and Spanish instead?

    Definitely possible at my uni (Lancaster) and there are a lot of people doing both a language from a level and one as a beginner

    if youre coping doing 3 languages at A level im sure you will be able to manage it, as long as you stay motivated it should be easy for you

    Lots and lots of people take up new languages at university alongside one they've studied at A level. Some people even pick up a language having never even studied one before!

    I really wouldn't worry about it. You're obviously talented at languages and if you really want to do Italian then I'd definitely go for it

    I am doing extra curricular classes in French and German from scratch at Uni. Definitely possible & a great way of meeting PhD students and international students

    I'm doing French and Spanish for A Level and am applying for Spanish and Arabic at university. Universities offer ab-initio courses for languages because it's possible, especially for people who enjoy and are good at languages. If you're interested in Italian, go for it!
