OP, it varies!
There are so many factors worth considering...Like some people might not have learned to read & write in their mother tongue language! And if your native language uses a completely different script (Think Urdu, Persian, Arabic etc) then just simply being able to speak it fluently won't help you in the written papers at all!
And noooo, A-level MFL exams sat by native speakers of the language, isn't the same as AL English lit exams sat by native English speakers...before someone uses that argument.
I have a thread which touches on the subject, if you want to have a look http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/show....php?t=1907610Last edited by thatitootoo; 23-03-2013 at 19:52.

If youre fluent in say...Urdu you do need to learn the script. Learn the script then read lots and lots of childrens books to speed up. That's what I had to do.
If your script is like English then it's easy. I f not you have to learn that. Give yourself 6 months of script study then you have to learn to write essays so it aint that easy. Give yourself a year.
