    The essay was great i did B about my area and the services
    BUT THE LISTNENING WAS IMPOSSIBLE OMGGGGGGG
    what were the answers for the last one about learning languages?
    i also did B!
    i think the answers were for the advantages:
    -gives you confidence
    -helps with mental development
    -makes you open to other cultures
    -(think this is wrong but not sure) gives you an advantage at work if you're the only speaker of a foreign language

    disadvantages:
    -courses are expensive
    -takes many years to speak it fluently
    -requires discipline and patience

    what did people get for the last 2 questions on the listening and the last 2 on the reading?
    Also if we wrote like 200 words on the writing would we get penalised?
    I asked my teacher this. You don't get penalised for going over the suggested 150 words- there's just more room for error/ chance you made a mistake.

    Damn looks like I really mucked up
    I put:
    Advantages:
    > It is useful for companies
    > You are open to other countries
    and two others but i can't remember

    Disadvantages:
    > The courses are expensive
    > A lot of people find it difficult
    > You need to be patient

    I thought that patience was an advantage? I thought it said it teaches you patience disipline and good learning habits. Anyone made a mark scheme? Thought it was pretty easy tbh they could have made that a LOT worse

    possibly but i thought the speaker said "it requires patience" which implies negativity, who knows tho i was lost by that point ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Does anyone know where I can find the unofficial mark scheme? I hope everyone did well on the paper, personally I found it easier than some past papers I did, listening was a bit tricky though.
