DT or Spanish GCSE Watch
I've been thinking about DT or Spanish.
My favorite one is Spanish, but everyone tells me that am really good at DT (I have good ideas!). I don't really want to do DT, as I don't feel that motivated to spend so many hours on coursework. my other subjects will anyway take a lot of time themselves! What do you think I should choose?
As someone in year 11, let me tell you dt, Art and any subject similar to those are a lot of work. My year started with 15 people doing DT, now there are 4!
Now don't get me wrong Spanish is also a lot of work as you have to prepare for sooo many speaking questions, and you need to get the grammar right and learn the vocab, but if you like the subject you'll be more willing to put in the work.
I did DT and French GCSE, and to be honest, I kinda wish I'd done another language instead of DT. Even though I was good at it, I preferred French and it's so much more useful. You can learn how to do DT at almost any point in your life, but teenage years are some of the best for picking up new languages, other than earlier childhood, of course.
I was debating between Spanish and Textiles, I ended up doing Spanish and I really recommend it, theres a lot to learn but I feel like everything links well and the grammar you use to often it naturally sticks. I am not gonna lie it was hard but I think it was really worth it
