Hey everybody, I thought I'd make a thread for everybody doing higher languages this year. This thread is for anything related to the languages you're doing whether it be help or general discussion!

I'm totally not stealing the idea from the Advanced Higher Languages thread .

NOTE: If you're posting in a foreign language please provide a translation so you don't get any warnings

I guess I'll start then! I'm doing German and French this year (self studying German since I couldn't do it in school ). I'm finding both pretty easy so far, doesn't help that my French class has Int 2s in it so we can't always do higher work :rolleyes:.

I did French and German last year and really enjoyed the courses. Make sure you work hard on the speaking though as you can bank 25% before even sitting the exam.

I'm doing Higher French and Higher German and got 1's in them both at S.G. Finding French quite difficult already, but I've never been that great at it. I am loving German though, it's pretty interesting. Hoping to do AH German next year!

It might not be spoken by many people but it's still a language so I'd say that it counts

Hi everyone,

I'm doing 2 languages at Higher: Gaelic and French, and I'm doing Intermediate 2 German.
Hoping to do AH Gaelic and French and H German next year. Any tips for improving with Higher French listening? and with writing, listening and speaking with German at Int 2?

I would say that any language (which can be done at higher) counts.

Hi there,
I did Higher German and French last year and am currently studying both at AH level this year, so would be happy to answer any questions that you may have.

The way I do it is I memorize the meaning of each word, not a translation. This really works for me and I can make up an ideal translation on the day, of course I know the translation well though.

And no I'm not sorry, I've got a week off just for Latin though, so I'm not doing any studying till then

I'll try that! Yeah, I have 8 days from the 15th of May, but as that's my birthday... No chance I'm studying then!
