    Hate it when schools force students to learn languages. Yeah they're beneficial and amazing qualifications to have, but if you hate it you can't learn!
    Exactly but its not like its the end of the world ^_^ I think I can be a B or an A at least

    You took both? Clever kid - my brain would hurt so bad and i'd probably muddle the language up. Still, glad I took French - in our Yr 10 exams, literally EVERYONE who took German said the exam was ridiculously hard and some had nervous breakdowns. No joke.

    And then there was us frenchies... The test took us all like 30 minutes at most - it was so easy that it was just a waste of time to sit there... I might've almost fallen asleep :cool: Teehee.

    French does sound nicer, doesn't it? It's just so 'francaisey' - only way I can think of to describe it haha.
    God no I'm not smart! Benchmarks all B's/C's and I'm in middle sets, a B grade student! I just click with languages, but I'm not 'smart' with them at all, I just like learning them even when they kill me with their difficulty at times I completely understand you! I revise by talking to myself randomly in either language and I sound so 'cool' speaking French :P Being able to actually speak a language and be understood has got to be one of the best feelings ever. My language end of year exams are usually past papers so both are of similar difficulty Favorite word is probably 'Bebe' (with accents on both e's) and 'Petit-mort' XD

    Well, personally I think it's better to actually enjoy something than just be 'smart' - otherwise you'd be bored out of your mind in lessons
    Favourite french words: 'Je ne sais pas????', 'NOOOOOON', et 'Tu parle fronglais?' Haha... Oh, and 'orange' It just sounds so much better in french...
    Actually, just say everything in a 'francais accent' and it sounds so amazingly 'chic'

    I laughed at the 'orange'! I've made a pact to myself to write 'Je mange une orange' in all of my speakings because it sounds so funny, I get a nice big tick every time

    My friend in another English class is outraged about the amount of homework they get, which is hyperbolised I bet, so my friend who is also in his English class made a parody of the Hitler Downfall thing with him complaining about homework :lol:

    Haha. You have a nice teacher
    'Orange' reminds me of my Yr 10 Speaking Mock thing where I blanked and said I ate 'orange avec du lait' for breakfast... So awkward - can't believe I forgot croissants.... Of all the things to say... Still, I didn't fail YAS

    Oh dear... neither can I :confused:. This is worrying... Meh. I'll live. :P
    Learning about 'les problemes a l'hotel' (with all the accents I can't bring myself to put on...)at the moment. Not the most interesting topic... But probably more useful if you actually go to France than say... the difference between qui/que or something pretty random like that

    NO! NO NO NO NO NO! NO NO NO!
    In year 9 I was in the foundation set, so I worked hard and now I've moved up 2 sets and still hating it Can't wait to drop it, but after all this hard work getting me to sit the higher paper I thought it would be such a waste if I got lower than a B.
    Yikes, A*'s for sixth form? We need 5 A*'s-C's, so I think I'll live. What are you thinking of taking?

    Well congrats on moving up! It's a shame that you don't like it - Just focus on the interesting bits to motivate you through the rest
    Yeah, I really wanna get into a grammar sixth form I want to do Physics, Maths, Further Maths & Computing. Your nightmare essentially! :rofl:

    Oooh fancy! And why thank you Errrgggghhh I envy you so much on being able to take those. I'm more scared about failing than the difficulty if that makes sense? I'm taking chemistry, biology, English lit+lang, German. Dreading chemistry because I'm not too good atm, but need it for biomed so I'll work hard What about plans after sixth form?
