    I would really like to become fluent. Is it difficult? I've heard you have to learn a lot but I am aiming for an A/A* at GCSE. Plus, I would be the only one in my year group choosing French.

    Yes, if you put the work in you'll sure to become near fluent there are only 4 people in my As french class- I think its better to learn a language in a smaller class as you can speak more, meaning you'll be more likely to be fluent

    Hi, I take AS French too and I really enjoy it I am hoping to take Translation Studies in French and Spanish at university.

    I would definitely recommend it, your writing and speaking skills will develop and classes are much smaller so you get a lot of help and support (only 2 of us plus 1 A2).

    I'm studying A2 French and I hope to go to university to study it too.
    French has always been my strongest/favourite subject.
    I must warn you that there's a lot of grammar in AS, and it's a lot more in-depth than GCSE. It's also necessary to know a lot about the grammar for the exam (at least for the present specification).
    If I were you, this summer, I'd be sure to learn some verb conjugations for each ending (-ir, -er, -re) and some irregular ones too. They're fairly easy to get the hang of, but it's absolutely necessary that you know them for the exam!
    If you already know these, no worries. Good luck for your GCSE's, you might change your mind! It's a very valuable A-Level to have, as very few students take it these days.
