Has anyone done/is doing AH French?

I'm doing it this year without doing Higher due to my school messing up the timetables totally - was just wondering what people found the course like??

Hi smile.gif

I'm not actually doing AH French this year, but my friend is. She seems to be enjoying the course but has a lot of work to do for it. We both did Higher last year, and she says that the course material is quite different, a lot more complex. Whereas Higher is mainly talking about personal things, like Holidays, future plans, family and home area etc, AH has a lot more to do with wider issues - moral and ethical stuff and a bit about Europe. At the moment, my friend is doing stuff about the pros and cons of marriage I think blink.gif . Hope you enjoy the course tongue.gif

I'm doing Advanced Higher this year, it looks quite good actually. You do more conversational stuff, the kind of thing you'd have to look at when you go to uni. If you do French at uni that is. We're doing modern-day marriages just now, too. Talking about divorce etc. I find the whole thing fascinating. Only problem is, I don't know when to shut up so if the teacher asks for an opinion I immidiately shout out, "I THINK..." then can't back myself up. tongue.gif

Looks pretty good though. Beats the good old "daily routine" crap any day. biggrin.gif

I'm doing AH French too. I'm part of the PiE project (Partners in Excellence) which is a FANTASTIC scheme set up by the government, and a very fantastic group of people. The project organises 'immersion visits' to foreign countries including France Germany and Spain. I have to say this PiE is fantastic, I can't state that enough. Without it, I don't think I would have got an A for French and German at Higher last year... If you want to hear more about PiE, just ask me...

Well I'm really enjoying the course. There is a lot of work but we have a really good teacher for 5 out of the 6 periods.

My speaking exams (both internal and external) are less than 2 weeks away...eeek....

Pretty good, as I said I'm really enjoying it. I got a top band grade B for the prelim, so as I've not done Higher I'm REALLY pleased with that. I'd love to get an A but don't think that will happen!

Trying to do as much preperation as possible for my speaking exams at the mo..

Also, I'm thinking about crashing German next year (the column choices I have are awful) - how do you think I would get on?

I have my speaking exam a week on Thursday. I am so scared. I don't want to do it. I know I'll just panic. =/

We've only done the reading prelim so far, and I got 68% for it, which I am really pleased with. Still got the listening to do though.

I'm not really enjoying French this year. One of our teachers is always "too busy" to take us, so I feel really unprepared for it. And when I feel unprepared, I panic.

ok how is it possible to do AH without the higher. I really think thats stupid. My school would never let us to that cos its such a high risk of failure!
By the way, no way would you ever be able to crash higher german without having standard grade if thats wot ure tryin to do..

Hi!
I've chosen adv higher french and german next year. Is it really a lot more work? I'm doing adv higher biology and higher sociology as well, hope it will all be ok. Looks like I'm heading 4 another busy year! Is it a big jump from higher to adv higher? Looks like we're only going to get a teacher for 3 out of 6 periods as there's only 6 people taking it next year.

Well this year i studied AH German and Chemistry and two highers. I would say that it is a big jump, too big! I find both AH subjects v hard in comparison with the highers. I had a teacher for 4 out of 8 periods a week and it wasnt too bad as alot of the exercises etc you do take a long time, however for the past few months I have not had a teacher at all - which makes it a little more tricky!

I didn't think the exam was bad at all, I thought the Reading + Translation was very fair. Did anyone else do it? :lonely:!!

Erm, it was ok. The reading and translation was great.

Only problem was, we didn't know that the listening had changed so we were still under the impression that it was the essay rather than the questions. It totally put me off the rest of that paper, so I really don't know how well I've done in that at all. =/

You see, we didn't have last year's paper so we just didn't know that the format had changed at all so I kind of almost wet myself when I read it and consequently missed the first half of the listening pratically.

Erk. Just as well I don't need it.

The only past paper we had was from 2002, my school didn't run it other years, so I'm glad I knew the current format! They seem to change it really often.

I'm hoping for a B, I think the speaking will have brought my grade down slightly so I'll just have to see I guess. A few people in my class said they misjudged what topics to revise for the discursive writing, and one girl wrote one line saying "I'm in 5th year, and I haven't done Higher - please be nice to me" and walked out laugh.gif
