When I was at school I had the option to pick up a second language in Year 9. I picked up Italian and carried on with French until the end of Year 9. In Year 10 when I started my GCSE Studies I dropped French. My teacher had been on maternity leave and out stand in was a waste of time – so that was probably one of my main reasons for dropping that.

I passed my GCSE but when I started AS Level Italian it went pear shape – I gave up after walking out my AS Level exam knowing I’d failed (I got a U!). The photo is of the homework sheets that I got back out when I did some translation at work.

(The picture has come up tiny!!! How did that happen?!?)
