AaRoN, I would like to help you out, but I can't quite figure out what you have written. Can you please try to make it clearer?

GCSE's. I've been through it and trust me, you don't want to mess them up. Best thing would be to go over your Japanese sometime in the evenings, but maybe give it full priority on the weekends, when you have more time.

Even if you feel you might have to skip some days of Japanese, don't worry about it too much because you have plenty of time to do so later. You don't want to end up regretting your GCSE results.

I hope that was of some help ;).

GCSE's...:@ I got another year 'till mine.
Well my tip would be to just do a little bit a day so it adds up to a decent amount. If you've got anytime you have to wait for a while, or spare time in classes (=p), then try to fit in some practice there. Get up 5-10 minutes earlier every day maybe?

Well, I've just finished my GCSEs and I'm onto A-levels, so I've got to fit Japanese around them. We're allowed to to "relevant study" in free periods, so I'm hoping they'll let me do Japanese.

Hey Supergrunch, I'm kind of worried about my A Levels. I wonder if I will get the chance to study Japanese? If they had courses going on in my college I guess it would help. :|

Mariya, chances are your college will offer a Japanese course, but you'll probably have to take it as an evening class, on top of your other classes. I don't know how it is in London, but here evening classes are free (except the £5 registration fee) if you're in full time education, so you should check it out.

Daichi. I asked if they have one, you're right...its the evening one. ^_^ Guess what, my parents think its a waste of time so I'm not allowed. :( . Hmph, I guess its back to learning on my own.

Well my school has no option for Japanese A-level, so I'm just doing it on the side.

You want to supplement your education by taking extra classes, and your parents think it's a waste of time? What would they rather you were doing?

Well I guess they don't understand why I need to learn a new language if I can't speak my own (Urdu) properly, lol. Also, since I sort of messed up my GCSE's, they'd rather I pay full attention to what they think will 'be more useful' in my life. (In my opinion Japanese is one of them! >.<)

if your time is really that limited, you better get super memo software for your PC. It will help you with your other studies too in my personal experience.

get it here =
