My dd1 wants to study french and spanish at uni.
Is it worthwhile she take a year out before uni to work in france or spain? One of my flat mates from uni was an au pair in Paris for a year before embarking on her degree (have since lost touch, and as a science grad don't know whether it is/was worthwhile).
Any advice gratefully received.

mathanxiety do you add Portuguese because it is a BRIC country? (--or short term due to the world cup football--)?
Seriously, how much trade is Europe going to do with Brazil when America is 'just up the road'.
Britain kow-tows to America and the Americans in government do not like the independence of the South American countries.

Yes, Brazil's economy (and potential) would be the main reason. It's the second largest in the western hemisphere. The EU accounts for about 25% of its trade, second only to South America as a trading partner.
