What language should I studyWatch
Seriously though, if you want to be an MFL teacher and are already taking Spanish, the next best option should honestly be French. I’m a B1 Level French learner at high school, and it’s honestly not that difficult. Practice is the key
At the end of the day, everything's fluid. Maybe your experiences up until now have marred your vision of French but it really is a superb language to learn and it complements Spanish very well. I'd highly recommend it. Otherwise, maybe you could pick up a different language like Portuguese, Italian, German, Japanese, Chinese Mandarin, Russian or Arabic. For all of the languages I've listed (even including German sometimes), universities generally don't need an A level to learn it at degree level. Ergo, you could apply for Spanish + another language at university without doing the other language at A level. That said, for degree level French, you'd definitely need A level French.
Little life story (skip to the bottom if it's TL): Back before GCSEs I hated languages, I've been learning French since I was 8/9, and Spanish since year 8. However, moving to a new school in year 10 meant that I wanted to make friends, and what better way to make new friends than to go on the French and Spanish exchanges? I ended up loving the exchanges and that ignited my passion for Spanish as a language, and subsequently my passion for languages in general.
However, when it came to A Levels, due to parental pressure, I could only choose to take French. I had to decide between the two and chose French even though I loved Spanish more as I thought it was a more technical language and I'd be able to keep up Spanish at a higher level with less maintenance. At the start of Year 13, I decided that I wasn't doing enough languages to be happy with myself, so I signed up for Italian GCSE (a completely new language that I started in January 2019 (ok not completely in Year 13)), French DELF B1 and Spanish DELE A1/B2.
To be completely honest, if you can't stand the idea of learning French, Italian is a great language to learn for someone who is sure they want to study the Spanish language. Speaking from experience, Spanish is a great base for an Italian beginner, and the both go relatively well at university, I know someone who got into Cambridge for Spanish and Italian!
Another thing to add as to why you should do Italian, if you don't speak any other languages (other than English and Spanish of course), broadening your horizons to Italian is a great starter for learning other languages. Languages like Portugese (and other romanic languages) are quite easy to learn the more romanic languages you have, however Italian is definitely the easiest to start with with Spanish. An argument on the other hand for German (and you can take A Levels outside of your college if you wanted) is that it's a Germanic language, and can open you up to things like Swedish Norwegian Finnish and Danish (if you ever wanted to learn those) .
Hope this helped!!
I speak Spanish and it sounds good for me , obviously I’m from Spain so I will say that , but also it depends where you go , there are more than 20 countries where people speak Spanish so they have COMPLETELY different accents so it’s just depends , but also I get it’s your opinion that you don’t like how it sounds
