    Hi everyone, I made a post similar to this about a month ago so some of you may remember seeing something similar (it was definitely me hehe)

    Basically I take 3 foreign languages for GCSE, not fluent in any of them (French, Spanish and German) and I am really interested in languages. I'm considering either studying English Literature or something language related at uni. I previously asked about taking 3 modern languages at A-level (my school does the Cambridge Pre-U course as opposed to the traditional(ish) A-Level) and then I decided against it, choosing Latin, Spanish, French and English.

    However, I am starting to want to take all 3 modern languages and drop Latin in favour of German as I doubt I will enjoy it, and I am pretty sure I'll enjoy German as I love the language and want to continue studying it. Dropping French, Spanish or English is a definite no-go so I wanted to take all 3 MFLs plus English with the possibility of dropping German.
    Does anyone have any advice regarding this situation? (or double language A-Levels, the pre-U course or just general advice - would all be appreciated!!)

    Your avatar strikes a bell.

    I think it is fine as long as you have the ability to do well in three of them. As fr the Latin, then perfectly respectable, but I would prefer another modern language due to its day to day applicability.

    My only point is when it comes to degree level then you may need to start specialising or considering where your qualifications will take you in terms of course and careers.
