I was just looking through my grades from the last couple of years and just noticed that every year my grades for Spanish (my native language) is embarrassingly low. I'm graded from one to twenty (yes, weird I know, right?) and only managed to get a thirteen (to provide a margin of reference, if I were graded from one to a hundred I would have gotten a 65) and my score for English was seventeen (more like 85/100) and even though it surprised me at the time (about 15 minutes ago), now I just find it to be expectable. I've never been a fan of Spanish, that's for sure. When I was in the third grade, they were teaching us were to use the 'accent' ('é',the apostrophe on top of the 'e' is colloquially know as the accent) but I never got around to it, and now they take away about 0.25pts for every orthographical error you make at a test, and even though I'm very good at spelling (spelling is really easy in Spanish, everything is written exactly how it sounds) I still make these mistakes. For the past couple of years I've ignored this due to me being lazy and all (and because they didn't take those oh so valuable quarters of a point), but I just find Spanish to be way harder than English, in the academical sense. The tests for my Spanish class are specially hard, seeing as my teacher hates everyone who dares misspell or mispronounce any word. Maybe my English teacher actually likes us, but I don't know about that either. Does anyone have a similar case of getting higher scores in a second language than for your own?
