I did standard grade french in 4th year and I got a 1 for it. Now I'm thinking about taking higher in 6th year and we have to decide next week...does anyone think it would be a good/bad idea?? dry.gif

Go for it, especially if you think the teachers are good.

yeh i thnk you should go for it too, you obviously must be quite good at french already:) though you should probably buy the leckie and leckie course notes and some grammar books to read over the summer to recap, comme ša, tu garderais ton franšais:)

I did exactly that a couple of years ago. When I did SG I had a bit of trouble with the listening part but I kept working on it and managed to come out of Higher with an A without too much grief. If you enjoy the subject, like the teachers and the people in the class it'll probably be great. I liked Higher so much I did it in my first year at uni, though unfortunately it sucked at Glasgow uni! Back to the point... just because you've been out of it for a year doesn't make it much harder, it's easy enough to get back into!

I did my higher french in 6th year too. It wasn't too hard to get back into it after a year gap.

I never put much work in to it though sad.gif

Good idea in my opinion, Higher French is easy for most

Maybe the exam is easy to pass but to be good at a foreign language you need to put the effort in.

Unless theres a major reason not to, just do it biggrin.gif

Well, I've decided to take it biggrin.gif I mean, really it's just another higher, but theoretically it means that there's a wider range of stuff I'll be able to do after school, well, if I pass that is! And I like it, and would like to think it likes me, so I'm just going to emmm...'take the bull by the horns'! Thanks for all your advice though. x
