I am in Year 12 and will be applying to university soon. I know that there is a lot of virtual work experience available, but I am struggling to find any for modern languages. Does anyone have any suggestions of work experience for modern languages (specifically spanish/french) ?

You don't need work experience for UCAS - reading, perhaps a bit of research, only courses, cultural interests etc if fine. However, you could try emailing translation companies, for instance, and asking whether you could virtually shadow a translator for a day... it's just a lot harder given the restrictions, or I'd suggest Au Pairing!
