    Sorry for the atrocious Spanish I'm really worried about my GCSE oral exam, which is on the 9th - I always go to pieces during oral exams. The higher tier role plays are really hard - the topics are things like applying for jobs, witnessing a shoplifter, discussing the results of a survey with a friend, etc. And as for the questions, don't even go there. Our teacher gave us a solid A4 sheet full of questions for every single topic, and though some are straightforward, some are really nasty and I don't know how to answer them at all!!
    I'm majorly worried about my Spanish oral too. I have 5 pages of A4 questions to learn the answers too :eek: and I haven't even started yet - I've been too busy doing the same for French.

    I've never been to Spain before, but if I did study Spanish at uni, I'd want to spend my 3rd year in Madrid or on a beach somewhere...

    I was asking a fair question, but feel free to take your abnormally sized head out of the 'room', if you can fit it through.
    Lame comeback. What are you, 12?
    Leaving now, I'd rather argue with someone who can actually offer some decent insults.

    Does Barcelona have beaches? I've only been in the city itself
    Don't go to Malaga for beaches, they're un poquito skanky (the sand is a really weird grey colour that sticks to everything, and the sea is quite dirty there depending on the day).
    I miss GSCEs, oh for the sweet lack of revision

    Please, you don't need to revise for GCSE I only really revised properly for Geography and History, and History was my worst result (although that's due to having an idiot for a teacher).

    La sociedad frances? Si

    Only founding members may make mistakes, which will be intended to test the rest of you.

    No it wasn't an angry smilie, 'twas a suspicious one. Ah, that explains.
    Well because they're the kind of subjects which it is not possible to revise. I didn't even try to revise English, I just wrote out all my notes into my books (but I hear you're not allowed do that anymore).
    I especially didn't revise Spanish or French, mainly because you can't revise languages. The only thing you can do is brush up on your grammar knowledge and look over some vocab. (Latin is different, but trust me you don't want to be doing Latin).
    I didn't revise for Maths purely because I detested Maths and had resigned myself to scraping a C at GCSE (do not know how I got the grade I did though)
    But you should practise your Orals, it will give you more confidence.

    Yeah, I've been practising my orals, but I haven't started learning any vocab yet and the exam is a month away......

    I don't know how I'm gonna revise English. Might as well just fail

    I have never revised for my German or Spanish exams. To be honest I don't know how! Apart from orals, of course. I've stuck little phrase-posters up around my rooms everywhere, but don't know how that'd help... I'm revising for English & Lit though. Just going through some notes for the set texts/poetry, and practicing analysing media.

    brimstone, if you have msn maybe we could practice the orals online... I'm doing that for german with a friend and it's not too bad

    You will not fail, anyone with half an ounce of sense can pass an English GCSE. I actually read an article recently about a study (conducted on the results of people who sat GCSEs when I did ) which indicates that PE, Drama, Media, English Lang, English Lit and Business Studies were the easiest to get top marks in
    Spanish, French, German and Double Science were some of the hardest :proud:
    And History...

    PE - understandable. I saw a practice paper for that subject, so easy. . Nice to know I'm taking the harder subjects, now let's see if I can pass them decently.

    Oi oi oi!

    Can I join please? My mum is Spanish (well Majorcan, so officially Catalan dialect of Spanish) and thus she has taught I and the bro's to a semi-fluent stage. My brothers all took Spanish A level for an easy A (why didn't I? hmmm). Adam even took it as 1 of 3 - lazzzy arse.
