    Hey guys,
    I'm in year 12 and I'm taking Spanish, French, Latin and Politics. I'm generally strong at all these subjects, but the homework takes me FOREVER. Like way longer than it should. I'm starting to feel really unmotivated because of this, despite the fact I love my subjects. And I used to get a lot more work during GCSE year, but I seemed to be fine with that.
    Is it because of my subjects?

    Languages do generally take ages. I do German and in Year 13 and honestly a reading comprehension takes me donkeys years.( Finding unknown vocab answering Questions) Honestly you'll get quicker the more it becomes 2nd nature. Besides your in early yr 12 so don't panic.

    Don't worry about it! I'm in Year 13 and I do French and Spanish too and, similarly to Shobiiii, the amount of time I spend googling vocab and phrases from homework is ridiculous. However, it's nowhere near the amount of time I took in Year 12 Everything will eventually start to become a little easier as you progress.

    Good luck!
