Hi guys!

Long story short, I studied Law, am currently training to be a corporate solicitor, but have decided it is not for me. I want to become a Spanish teacher. I love everything about Spanish: the language, the cultures, the cinema and the arts. Having it as a career would literally be a dream.

I studied Spanish to A level and got an A grade. I also studied two Spanish modules during university, passing them both at 2.1 level, but then stopped. I didn't return to Spanish again until I graduated in 2016, when I went to Spain for a year to become an English Language Assistant. Basically by the time I came back my Spanish was pretty good.

Anyway my question is, what are the chances of being accepted onto a Spanish PGCE? I know a lot of times they want you to do two languages, and I did also study a French module at university but really I just want to focus on Spanish. If I put on my cover letter that I am willing to do an SKE, would my chances improve?

Also I know that if I am unsuccessful then this is definitely something I want to do. Do you think studying modules to gain credits from the Open University would help for 2020 applications if I am unsuccessful?

Thanks for all your input! There is a lot of information out there so would be good to hear from people.

Super excited to get back to university in any case and get this dream of mine alive.
