ive learned python for 3 ish years, and im quite good at it. however at alevel my class is studying c#, and i have to be able to code at the same level in c# that i was in python by christmas.

halfway to christmas and ive just about figured how to do loops. honestly, i have to spend most of the lesson googling what the equivalent to (thing) in python is. im not really getting better.

how do i tell my teacher that i would prefer to do python instead of c#?

( this would affect the NEA (any language should be fine for this) and the exam ( you get given code and have to finish code ( it would be in c# unless i change to python)

Even if your class is learning in c# can you not write your answers to questions in python? Your teachers should be giving you the same number of marks for either language. If you haven't already you should tell your teachers you are much more comfortable coding in python and you should be fine tbh. The only thing is that your teacher may not be able to understand python but if they're teaching they really should.

There's nothing wrong with your question though. If he makes fun of you for a genuine, important question you could talk to the head of department or someone similar.

If I was you I would ask him before half term, otherwise you might be wasting your time learning c# in the holidays, the earlier the better
