I've tried to get a response on the german v french debate since I have to decide on one for a-level and can't decide with doing both out of the question. I recently spoke to my Head of Languages and German teacher,who said German is more difficult so more presdigous to have, and can double your salary (hmmmm??? yea i made a face when she said that) and only clever people do it so my class will be good. Also, when it comes to Law, French is a common language so deling with French clients requires no specialist skill whereas a German client requires someone with the rare and special German fluency. That's the message i'm feeling anyway.
What do you think? Will choosing French over German halt my chances and close dooors german would open?
Is German more highly looked upon?
I enjoy French more but apparantly it is a waste to do it instead of German.
I've been told I am just as good in both predicted A* at GCSE got full UMS A* in unit 1 and 2 modules (reading and listening) in January results.
Any help appreciated
Is it really that intense? Would I cope?
