    Hi im doing gcse next year

    and i cant decide between arabic or fench, since u helped me decide between history an classical civ (i chose hist) i think you might be helpful

    Im quite good at arabic and feel i could get a gd mark

    im ok at french but dont think i should drop it after 6 ueras, im getting a tutor (and hopfully that will move me to higher tier) i know this might stupid but a c in anything would devistate me (thats why im so worried about French and art)

    Maybe i should choose whats good for the cv? dunno!

    Please any help would be really aprreciated

    Yes, I'd guessed. Just pointing out that both languages would be useful for different things. :rolleyes:

    I'm not sure people would give mch weighting to Arabic, knowing that you are Arabic and this gives you a huge edge. French would be considered more of a challenge.

    you say youre arabic; so take arabic outside of school and french in.

    best of both worlds, and if youre good at arabic then it shouldnt be too much extra work

    arabic is supposed to be quite easy apparently so do them both. if you are really fluent at arabic then it wont be much extra work at all. they are really easy papers ad they are like primary school arabic,.but yeh just go for both.

    I'd say French, because if you're Arabic and you take that as a GCSE, then it just looks like a cop-out.

    Besides, French GCSE is very easy, just learn the verbs religiously and the vocab, and it's pretty hard not to get at least an A. Our year took French a year early and only 1 person failed to get an A*. It's really quite easy.

    hey,
    choose what you really want- maybe make a list of all the things you like about each and that'll help.
    i'm studying french and will probably continue it for A-level, it's really usefull and not to hard to learn, i can also study arabic and that's a nice language- the characters are different and that's what makes it interesting. i guess that didn't help LOL :confused: but choose what you enjoy doing and not always what'll be better for the future- because its about now

    I'd go for arabic; much more interesting (i.e. non-latin) and I'd guess is more widely-spoken than French.

    i would do french because the launguage is sexy and it is a neighbour country, also arabic is the launguage that is used by a country at war init so it wont be useful in later life
