Hi, my names Jen, I'm 16 and Scottish. I've been doing French and German at school for a while now and plan to take up Spanish as well for my final year. Although I've been learning German for about three years longer than French, I'm still having trouble with German grammar and would like to know if this elusive "aha! moment" my teacher is harping on about will ever materialize?

Or, any tips regarding Accusative, Nominative, Dative and Genitive cases, when to use them etc etc would be greatly appreciated, as would a quick summary of future/conditional tenses. And, I have my higher exam on Wednesday and would like to listen to some German music to get my ear accustomed to the language again, so any artists you could recommend would be wonderful - I'm not fussy what type of music.


Also, I have decided that languages are what I want to do for the rest of my life, more specifically Interpreting and Translating. Unfortunately, as far as I am aware, there is only one University in Scotland offering this course, with only 25 places available. Sooooo if any of you are in this field and have any tips or things I could do to add to my application and make me more appealing to the University this would also be greatly appreciated.

Thank you :)
