Basically today we found out at school, that we are having to take a lesson of Arabic/Chinese once every two weeks (100 minute lesson). I think that sort of takes the p*ss, when we are taking 4 AS levels, plus general studies, and plus 1 lesson of PE every two weeks. The school has no reason to make us take this pointless subject, they are just trying to make themselves look good after getting some crappy language college status.
Has anyone else had a language forced down their throat?
well our school is a language college but we didn't have to take random language lessons!? but I wouldn't mind taking Latin lessons though as it's probably useful later on. Oh btw, P.E. is not compulsory at sixth form.
Nope but you never know, that language may be useful one day, and the universities will LOVE it!
i had to do a language when i got into a sixth form last year that was a language college, left though but it was an hour every week of either french, spanish or chinese
PE isn't compulsory for any of the 6th former st my scholl, but at the college im going to i have to do PTE, philosphy, theology and ethnics, wich is compulsory because its a religous school. You dnt have ot do PE there, its a college, ur free of that crap.
Chinese would be interesting though!
You should do chinese, but anyway they should give a better variety of languages to you
