    I'm currently doing GCSE German and it's my favourite subject. I'm doing well, getting an A in most past papers and coursework I've done. I want to do A-level German and then maybe consider going to do a degree in German since it's a possible career path (e.g. translating or teaching)

    So, if you're doing A-level German, how do you find it?

    I find it very hard, not going to lie. I got an A at GCSE (flippin 4 UMS off A* :cry2: ) but only got a C at AS (to be fair, I had an A in the speaking but a D in the written - bad day, i think. Not so much that I was that unprepared). I think there is a lot of work especially transitioning from GCSE to AS. A2 I'm not finding too bad actually.

    That being said, if you really are passionate about it like I am, and you do seem to be, I think you'll have a ball. It is tough but it is also a lot of fun and trust me. You will learn to speak and write German well. Seriously. A Level German is worth it if you love the language.

    I'm in year 13 now and I'm doing German, French and Geography. I really love German, though I'm not planning to do it at uni. Just to be warned it is a step up from GCSE but you'll get to grips with it fairly quickly after the first term. If you get a fair amount of homework now at school the workload shouldn't be too much of a jump either. Make sure you put in the work and I'm sure you'll love it, it sounds like you're interested in it!
