I read Spanish at Oxford University alongside French and German, and as a secondary school teacher I found it to be the most popular languagea choice at GCSE and A-Level. No one can deny that Spanish is sexy!
I now have three regular Spanish groups from complete beginner to upper intermediate.
Since visiting couples in Venezuela, I fell in love with Latin American music and dance. And at Oxford, I ran the salsa society and performance team.
Fun fact: I learnt to dance flamenco in Spanish and had a novel (non violent!) way of instantly achieving silence in the classroom with my flamenco shoes
