    I have taken both French and German for my GCSE'S and I keep getting mixed up in the lessons. In French I'll accidentally say something in German or the other way around. Will I be able to eventually separate the languages and not get mixed up?

    That's quite normal and I think a lot of people have that problem. As with most language-related things, it'll probably become less of an issue with practice. I wouldn't worry too much about it though, the important thing is that you just try to talk as much as possible, the worst thing you can do is stopping practising speaking the languages because you're worried about making a mistake.

    eventually you will when you are practically fluent but, for GCSEs its not the best idea to take two. honestly i can't tell you what to do but i do recommend dropping one of them

    Try using Memory Palaces specifically for French and German. If you give mental locations that are specific to the language, you'll be far less likely to mix them up.
