Hi, I'm currently debating between Italian ab intio or Spanish B SL. I have been doing Spanish for many years, while having no prior experience to Italian. I am wondering, is ab initio of a new Italian easier or Spanish regular at SL? My IGCSE grade in Spanish was high, an A, but I'm trying to see what is the easier option. Thank you.

I would definitely suggest doing Spanish SL. My friend does Italian ab initio SL and its very fast-paced so that you can get to a speaking standard, almost as good as SL. Also, Spanish is generally the easier language, and with Italian you might mix up the new vocabulary with the one you learnt previously in Spanish. And the obvious one: starting a new language from scratch is much harder than progressing in one you have already learnt.

But please don't base your decision completely on which you think will be easier; choose the one you fell intrigued to learn about. Did you enjoy learning Spanish? Or are you done with it and you want to start from scratch? Remember that you spend time studying culture and literature (I do Spanish HL). Does the Italian culture and language intrigue you?

Hope this helps, let me know which one you choose!
