I was hesitant at first on whether or not to pick Spanish for my GCSE but in the end, I chose to take the course as it was good for my future like all language subjects do. My grades were pretty good during year nine as I had a pretty good teacher, but later on, when I found out I was going to have a **** teacher after year nine that's when my grades went downhill.
Despite my current teacher having more experience than my previous teacher, she cannot teach at all. She makes us do textbooks every lesson without explaining how to form actual sentences, teaches us phrase formulas that never get brought up again, and makes us remember paragraphs that 'she' made up. Although I did do pretty well on my first reading test last term but this term I did completely ****. (This term we only had reading and listening) Most people did pretty well despite them saying it was a fluke but I felt that I was left out. Even my friend (that doesn't put in the effort at all) sitting next to me did better in her reading test than me, just saying she copies me ALL THE TIME. The reason why I did so **** is that the words she told us to remember were supposed to come up in the test. HARDLY any popped up. Does anyone know what to do or how I can revise with such a bad teacher? I'm also pretty sure she hates me because some people reported her because I was the victim of her being racist/offensive to me? To all the grade nine students how do I do better in Spanish?
