Students may choose Spanish if they have studied it in Year 8 & 9. There is a great demand for students to study Modern Foreign Languages in Higher Education, and Languages are useful in many careers (e.g. Travel and Tourism, Teaching, Industry). It can be particularly advantageous to have a knowledge of Spanish, as it is one of the most widely spoken languages in the world and there are fewer people in competition for jobs where it is a requirement.
