    German (dropped after GCSE but can still speak pretty confidently)

    Dont worry as you can still learn the language outside of your studies like in your spare time if you want.

    Was your exam board for German AQA?
    My exam board was AQA and the L and R exam was hard for me.

    wbu? How did you find your German exams?

    I was raised trilingual - English (native tongue), Italian (father is Italian) and Spanish (mother is Hispanic-American).

    The Spanish I was raised speaking is castellano de Chile (i.e. Chilean Spanish), as my grandfather is Chilean (and thus that's what my mum was raised speaking, as well as English). Castellano de Chile has differences in pronunciation, grammar and vocabulary to standard Spanish, as well of course its own slang terms.

    I also took both languages at GCSE and A-Level, taking Italian two years early in each case. However, with Spanish, I'm actually learning new things, because obviously it is taught as standard Spanish. At first, I found it quite a challenge to alter my way of thinking, in terms of the differences between Spanish and Chilean Spanish, but soon managed to adapt to the differences.

    English and can understand quite a bit of german and hold a decent conversation. I know enough to be able to live there and get by lol and used to be able to watch films with no subtitles but I've not done that in a while so probably a little rusty. I can get the gist of most conversations though and once you know the alphabet you can read pretty much any german because unlike english, it reads like it sounds out :| I really want brush up on my german and learn more languages, I was in France recently, and although my limited french got me by to the point that the only english I spoke was to a tourist i'd love to get to the stage that I'd be able to start making jokes in the language without pausing :P
