    I'm finding AS French quite dull...probably because we are doing lots of grammar, and I'm finding it all quite difficult!

    I do both AS French and German and I find both courses quite interesting. In French, I have one teacher who teaches us loads of grammar, which the majority of our small class moan about, saying it's dull, whereas I find it quite interesting, although I'm a complete language geek Nonetheless, I still find the rest of the course interesting too, even the social aspects of the lessons, which I have noticed many people in this thread have referred to as another PSHE lesson.:p: The only part of the course which I do find slightly boring is the whole role play thing. It bores the hell out of me:p:

    Anyways, must dash...speak later!

    I'm not fond of the role playing either, which is odd considering I'm a Drama student.
    I loved the grammar at AS, and I still love it at A2. Also a language geek

    I love languages. I did 3 for GCSE and got A*s with hardly any work. I was convinced i wanted to do 3 modern langauge A-levels- but now iv started them i find it so boring.

    I hate the syllabus- its so boring- its like doing PHSE in french/german/ect. I dont feel like iv improved in my languages at all (I started french and german).

    I think it might be partly my teachers- we work out of the text book alll the time- and language text books are always so boring. Plus- its obvious the topics are just supposed to be a medium on which to learn the language, and the text books are meant to be a tool for familiarizing us with the syllabus.

    Im moving schools now because i dnt enjoy the french and german at the school im currently going to- and in the other school im going to its apparently really good.

    Sorry for the rambling, incoherent nature of this- I was just wondering if other people are having the same experience
    Definitely - my AS/A2 level german syllabus was basically my general studies syllabus, only in german. I enjoyed the lessons, though, because our class had only 6 people in it, and it was a good laugh .

    The actual subject content was pretty dull, but the main thing to remember - especially for A2 - that as long as you have an opinion on something, you'll be fine.

    Well, actually, I would advise you to stick to simpler forms of sentence structure. Stick with things that you know 100% backwards and forwards, so you don't mess it up. I used some pretty basic structure in my A2 oral, and I came out with a B. Obviously if you can manage complex stuff - and with practise, anything is possible - then go for it. But simpler is generally easier, and so you're less likely to go wrong.
