Don't worry about it too much, I'm sure you will do great!
You have only just started so it will proably sound difficult to you now, but before you know it you will have learnt everything you need to know.

Last year I took my GCSEs and my friend was failing French right up untill the exam (she even fell asleep in the exam!! :-? ) but she still managed to get a C! You should be fine. :D

there is one sligh problem, i haven't long been at this school(if you want to see my other prob is on boyfriend,girlfriend, called "moving reltionships") before i moved i learned german at my old school, and from lesson 1 i was an absolute fanatic :bounce: , now i can't step counting in german, i keep saying schnell(quick :lol: ) as a joke, and it seems to be overtaking my french learning. i've been fine so far (apart from when it comes to times :-? ) but i'm still worried i'll end up putting eins instead of un on an answer that is 1! :-?
Time. Time is an artificial construct. An arbitrary system based on the idea that events occur in a linear direction at all times. Always forward, never back. Is the concept of time correct? Is time relevant?

oh so you're studying french from scratch? don't worry, term's only started so it's normal that you haven't got the frame of mind to speak french just yet. try watching french movies (like amélie or Taxi), or dvds but change the language to french just to get you thinking in french. i love it that you're so enthusiastic! that alone will get you very far.
