    hi... im pretty good at Spanish (i can get a 7/8 (A/A*) without much revision) and my teacher said I'll be great at A Level and that i should definitely do it. She's an honest teacher so if i was bad at it she would tell me not to do it as she has already told some people to not take it and a few have dropped out. If I'm honest, i do have a talent for languages (like foreign languages), every one i know has told me so. But the thing is idk whether i should do it or not... like i really like Spanish and i CAN do it, but the textbooks seem kinda boring if I'm honest and I'm kinda scared that the people taking Spanish will be AMAZING at it - almost fluent! also I'm going to another sixth form college so i wont know anyone or any teachers, so I have a fear of the teachers picking on me and then i wont understand what they're on about and embarrass myself!! Please help me!! Thanks!

    If you enjoy the subject and think you are decent at it then id go for it. You are already getting good grades by the sound of it. Your teacher wouldnt tell you to go for it if they didnt think you could do it.
    What other subjects are you doing?

    Do it! I love Spanish as well and taking it with more advanced students made me a lot better at speaking it. It is definitely work the challenge and sometimes struggling through boring texts.

    I was unsure of whether to take spanish for similar reasons but am really glad that I did! I recommend that if it’s something you enjoy and something you don’t struggle with now, you will do fine next year. Your Spanish will improve a lot in the first few months of sixth form and even if there are native/ fluent speakers, you will find that you improve greatly and will still be on track to receive top grades. Also remember spanish is a facilitating subject and is good to have on your applications and CV!

    Definitely take Spanish if you enjoy it. Learning languages will set you apart from others are not many people take languages and it opens up a lot more opportunities. I love Spanish and am so glad I decided to take it at a level.
