    Kl how u finding it ?
    It's alright, my teacher seems nice and I think she's one of my favorite teachers so far. Pretty intense but I like it. Better than my other tutors.

    The course seems quite information heavy from the looks of my syllabus but am really looking forward to the more hands on parts of it. To be honest, I've not really done much so far

    What programming language are you learning?

    Don't you get to go home?
    No, my sixth form doesn't let year 12s go home until the end of the normal school day (year 13 are aloud to go home after afternoon registration because they are trusted to use their time for studying or homework). It was actually okay today, my maths homework took longer than expected and I did some Spanish homework that isn't due in until Tuesday and then sat outside in the sun with my friends and ate chocolate because we all had fifth period free.

    Anyone doing computer science here ?
    I am! So far we've only been doing programming because most of us haven't done any since finishing our controlled assessment for GCSE.

    I guess we are the same but I've had to work in most of mine so far:lol:

    Apparently because AQA science was easy compared to OCR which had harder stuff but idk :dontknow:

    never had her as a teacher but she ran my french a level taster session, she basically said 'it's going to be tough but we'll try and make sure you don't fail' hehehow are you finding the school so far? not too bad i hope i think it's quite common not to give out exercise books? i can't imagine how much paper you'd end up using with all those essays to dofrench i feel is okay so far, i can generally get the gist of what the teacher is saying but my question forming game is weak so i just stay quiet lmao
    French is good, I haven't had my other French teacher yet but I already got some homework from her. Everyone in my class is basically fluent or French and I feel so inferior. The worst part is I can read, write and understand what she says well but my accent isn't the best so I hate speaking

    That's pretty true. We've been here since Year 9. Hmmm. :sly:

    Usyyy... I kind of feel like I'm behind already even though we haven't done that much. Especially in Biology. There is so much in the textbook. :/

    Same. I'm going to try and be more productive in my frees from next week. I have one tomorrow and I'm planning to make more flashcards. I need to finish my homework from today... and do some 'extra reading'.
    Genau! :ahee:

    Everything just seems to be more in depth, which is exciting!

    Keep speaking!! A lot of my friends who take French have been saying that but the only way you can better is to speak.
