    We're doing the imperfect atm, and in German I'm doing 'das Dativ' which is just memorizing the genders BUT I CAN'T DO THAT. I've done 3 writings and 1 speaking in French, All B's/A's. Wbu?
    Gah grammar - our teacher's french so it's second nature to her - (hilarious when you get her to say cockroach - it sounds like cockwatch.... - random fact of the day)
    Ouch. Genders in German? Painful.
    Doing iGCSE so all exams in summer eeeeeeek but my teacher is remarkably optimistic so predicted A/A* - but my work standard fluctuates so no way of guaranteeing it... I wish

    Don't want to sound big-headed, but both languages my benchmarks are C's! I'm aiming for an A, if not A* in German. My old French teacher was French, but my one now just had a French mum :/ My German teacher has the whole 'scary German teacher' look but she doesn't speak with the German accent. Also, Germans can't pronounce squirrel, it's how they spotted spies in the war There's also 50 words to say 'A' in German :mad: (ein, einen, etc..) Oh, the joy of languages!

    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?
    Heehee, no problem I just like physics mainly, but maths has its moments
    Yeah, I get you and I feel pretty much the same way about everything I'm doing Maths, english lit+lang, biology, chemistry, physics, music, geography, RE shortcourse, computer science, German and I've done statistics. Biology is my worst science and ooh biomed nice! It's good to see people motivated

    I want to go to uni (aiming for oxbridge but mmmrmrmm) and study physics or computing or physical sciences, how about you?

    Sounds pretty hard My only creative subject is Music (OCR) which is okay at the moment, but the theory is incredibly boring!

    Facts of the day. Danke.
    And no, you don't sound that big-headed much. It's fine.
    And if she has a french mum, doesn't that make her... um.... french? Or at least half french?
    I love how we both ignore Spanish... I even took it for a year. What put me off was having to sing One Direction's 'Live while we're young' in Spanish.... Gah.

    Mhhm yeah he is French, but he doesn't have an adorable French accent. Such a stupid error I made by saying he isn't french ahaha
    Oh I didn't learn Spanish In my school our year group is split in half in year 7-9, so one side learns french and german and the other learns french and spanish. Happy I learnt German, but I wish I learnt Spanish too I hate one direction so singing them in a foreign language was probably worse than singing them anyway

    Whoops. I assumed it was a she. Odd.
    yeah, I dropped German in year 8 to study Spanish because I knew that I only wanted to do french only for iGCSE and just wanted to try a new language. spanish is nice - apart from singing of course. (yh i hate one direction too - it was painful tres tres tres) loads of people in my year do spanish actually. can't believe they weren't put off by one direction :confused:

    Oh nice was thinking of going along physics route or biology route and biology won in the end.

    My school has FM but yeah... I don't think it's really for me I can't stand the thought of even moooore maths - in our school if you do maths and further maths,you end up doing 3 hours of maths a day sometimes. Me thinks no. :P
    Must be horrible when you want to do something and it's not offered.

    3 hours lol imagine putting physics within it that'll be like 4 hours, rip sixth form life. But yeah it sucks the way I can't do it, I really enjoy maths but it's k, I get to escape the risk that I might get a bad grade

    Yh, my school doesn't offer eng lang. I'd probably do better at that and yeah, i'm dreading biology - there's always a lot to REMEMBER and i have a ridiculously selective and short term memory. Ack.
