    German and Spanish but I'm trying to cheat the Spanish to get to a higher level as you'd think a predicted A* at GCSE would get you somewhere

    To be honest, I think it at that age it's better to teach through immersion. Immerse them in it and point out their mistakes to point them in the right direction.

    I would love to know whether there is a difference in the usage of the words 'town' and 'city' in English. I personally would use the word 'town', if the population is smaller than 20,000 inhabitants and 'city', if the population amounts to 100,000 inhabitants at least.

    What do you use for a place between 20k and 100k then? :teehee:

    From my experience talking to Dane(s) about this, in the UK we tend to view much larger settlements as towns than they do. I expect the German view on what a city is versus a town might also differ a lot.

    Everything you might wish to know is probably here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/City_s...United_Kingdom

    As you can see from the link, traditionally a settlement had to have a cathedral to be conferred city status, although that is no longer a requirement.

    My hometown has a population of 42,000 according to Wikipedia. The closest town to it has 142,000 inhabitants but is not a city.

    Not the college! :eek: in the college there are LOTS! Although a lot less compared to my school... Which was probably 50+% Muslim!

    Cardiff itself is quite diverse I think, but certain areas are home to certain ethnic backgrounds. Eg if you asked me where Bengalis or Somalis lived, I'd give you an area.

    I meant 3 in my French class at most, including me.
    C'est bien! I am relieved; I was feeling really sorry for you! :rofl2:

    I think three in a class is enough for the school to take Ramadan into consideration to see if it is possible to schedule trips around it. Might not be possible, but they should check.
    Combien de gens dans la classe française? Moins que dix?

    Hello everyone!

    I'm in year 10 and this year I am finishing my French GCSE (this is early for my school and I am the only person). Next year, as my teachers have advised against doing AS, I will be doing both Spanish and Italian GCSEs. Due to out of school study, my Italian R&L is at A* standard and writing and speaking are coming along nicely. However, I haven't done Spanish since year 7 and remember very little, and apparently I will be doing my first speaking/writing in October/November! This gives me a grand total of around three months to get my Spanish to a reasonable level (I'd quite like an A*). Combined with Italian at home and keeping my French current ready for year 12, I see that this may be slightly difficult. :-) Any tips?

    Wahey, another Year 10 who likes languages!! :five: I finished a GCSE language (Italian) in Year 10 too! You could use Duolingo for the basics, and I suppose just brushing up on the tenses and learning vocab is what you need to do. Do you know the topic of the speaking/writing? Also, which exam board are you on??

    I want to try and self-teach Spanish to GCSE level over the summer (I learnt Spanish in Year 8/9 but chose French and Italian instead for GCSE). If I can do that, I'm going to ask my language teachers whether I can be submitted for the Spanish GCSE but not go to the lessons. Since we've got a similar amount of time to make our Spanish reasonable again, we could help each other, if you want??

    I'm actually teaching English to Spanish students and am looking into creating a blog.

    Your tips are very good. Thank you.
    Ah okay, sounds good!! No problem!
