    Thanks for your reply! I've been learning French for 5 years, and have relatives who are native speakers from my Dad's side, so I try to practice speaking with them. I haven't picked up a routine with improving my French, but on average, I read/listen to French 3 times a week.

    What do you do when practising?
    Well I more sort of learn German instead of practicisng it, so I go through the pages in german.about and try to set like goals for what I want to cover that day...ie. today Im going for the Imperfekt tense!! And french would just involve speaking in it on here with people in the hope that they correct my mistakes! Et vous?

    Hello!! Tbh, i rarely practice French although I speak a bit of it on here, so I suppose you could count that as practice. on the other hand, I practice German about every day for one or two hours at least...How about you? Do you speak any languages?
    That's waaaay more than me. I haven't learned any German for over 2 months now, but my memory is sharp

    Hahaha, I'll try that then:

    J'essaie de lire des livres, comme, par exemple, "Bonjour tristesse", mais quelquefois, je besoin utiliser un dictionnaire quand je ne comprends pas des mots. Aussi, j'ecoute de la musique et je regarde des films et videos sur 'YouTube'. Si je peux, je lis 'Le Monde' et je traduis le texte...

    This summer, I began learning the basics of German. I find the grammar hard though

    L'Allemande est tres (satifying) quand vous écrives une phrase sans erreurs!!

    Pour moi, je prefere l'Allemedane pour ces raisons ^^^ et je ne sais pas tout l'Espagnol!! Mais si vous vouliez dire le Francais ou l'Allemade, puis je prefere le Francais parce que c'est mon meileur langue!!

    Moi aussi. Le Francais est vraiment satisfaisant (satisfying), et j'adore la culture et le pays aussi. Dans l'avenir, j'espere que je peux parler le francais courrament (i think that means fluently)

    Hah, Danke!

    Aber ich würde mit dir widersprechen, weil ich noch nicht meinen Noten bekommen habe, und so vielleicht ich bin nicht so befähigt.

    Ich denke dass jeder Person eine Fremdsprache lernen kann. Es braucht nur Motivation und ein bisschen Ausdauer.

    Hahaha, my Aunt lives in Germany, and she always says it. If I recall correctly, it means 'Practice makes Perfect!'

    They sound like a wonderful combination of AS Levels. So you must like essays then, huh?

    Haha, everyone says that to me. Hmm, well, I do like writing and deconstructing arguments in a critical way, I guess. I've always had a general interest in various aspects of History; I just hope the topics we cover will be engaging. If anything, English Literature is the only subject I am not 100% sure about. I haven't written a fictional piece of writing or poetry in many years, and I don't read fiction books that often. I used to read a lot more, but now most of my reading revolves around languages.

    What other subjects are you studying?
