    Hi, I have been working very hard recently howver in my german and French wjec mocks I only achived D both only a couple marks off Cs, im starting to regret taking them as I have been doing 2 hours a day- listening- vocab- grammar- oral questions etc. Others in my class beat me with much higher grades and I feel like I've been waiting my time- I wish I could get an A but a high D seems in achieve able even with the work im doing??

    Doing 2 hours a day doesn't mean much if you're not actually retaining the information. Have you asked your teachers where you need to improve?

    I don't think 2 hours a day is enough for listening. What sort of stuff do you do? Watch movies with subtitles? Music? News?

    That is not enough. Watch films, the news, YouTube videos etc.

    listen to music!! and read lyrics to songs you're listening to; helped with Spanish a lot, and you pick up on a whole wide range of vocabulary and it helps hugely with grammar and conjugations!
