Recommended Posts

ok i got a C on my gcses and Ive doen french since year 8 and during that time I got B's but at year 11, i got lazy coz my teacher was crap so ye. and honestly i dont know much tenses like the imparfait and stuff.

and so i wanna do spanish coz i think that it will be easier to do since your learning form scratch and i can like be serious and listen well in class.

I suggest you take Spanish ab initio. Because firstly it's easier than French, and secondly , it's pretty evident from your grades, no offence, that you don't really like French. Plus, Spanish sounds awesome :)

Well it's obvious you don't like French. :P And you seem to want to do Spanish instead. So I'd do Spanish. Spanish is fun :) It's a bit harder in the sense you are starting from scratch whereas in French B you have some background already, but French is quite similar to Spanish (both are romance languages and Latin-based) so you have a slight advantage already.

For your ab initio oral you have two parts. One is in a group, and the other is a short conversation with your teacher where you have a picture and you describe it and answer questions about it.

For your language B oral you also have two parts. One's in a group. The other part is a teacher conversation, but it's a bit different. Here you have about 3-4 minutes to present a topic of your choice (related to the French-speaking world though), 3-4 minutes of answering questions about your topic, and then 3-4 minutes of free conversation with your teacher.

Buena suerte!

Edit I may or may not be biased since I take Spanish B HL :hypocrite:
