Dd has to choose which language to study in years 7&8. The letter says they recognise that the various primary school all offer different languages to varying degrees so they will assume no knowledge

Dd started simple frenchbin nursery(la Jolie ronde) and reception. I always thought she enjoyed it and when we visited Disney Paris she kept trying to ask for things in French.

However a couple of years the school changed the system and they began to alternate French, German & Spanish one term of each

I asked dd which she wanted to do. She says def NOT French as she finds that the hardest. She enjoys Spanush the most but thinks she's better at German.

Dh says she should do German as its the main business language. Dd is more swayed by the fact there are quite a few jobs for dancers in Germany!

They can choose to take an extra language in year 9 if they want to but what she chooses now will probably end up being what she does her gcse in!

No, we don't go on holiday to anybody those countries except maybe once every 3 or 4 years.

Anyway, she's chosen German.
