My Website Name Has Been Hacked

I was doing some maintenance on my website, the usual things one does. Deleting spam comments and such when I have come across a third listing for my website linking it to an abortion blog that was not written by me. There seems to be quite a few. Any past blog that refers to abortion that has my website name attached to it was not written by me.

The use of my website name was not authorised. I do not use the Brighton Spanish Lessons website for any type of political stance or the airing of any political issues. 

If any of these articles have offended anyone please allow me to express my sincerest apology to you. I have deleted the blog template that was placed but the website links remain. Google has been contacted and the unauthorised links will be removed in time.

Well the results are in for all pupils across the nation and I hope you all achieved the success you deserve. 

My advice for any pupils who are moving into year 11 GCSE Spanish or French in September is to revise on a regular throughout the year. The new GCSEs are hard. I am sure that you will hear this a thousand times over the year from your MFL teachers. There is one reason we bang on so much about revision. Do you know what the reason is? Here it is the answer you have been waiting for..... it works. It is very simple. It works. 

Spanish or French GCSE are not subjects that can be crammed for in any way. (I am in no way advocating cramming for other subjects and that should not be attempted) The material for MFL is just too vast.

Each Year 11 pupil will need to ensure that they are always on track with prep (yes doing homework will help solidify what you are learning) and to create their own revision schedule. I have seen it too many times. Pupils freaking out as their Spanish or French exams have "crept up on them". No they didn't. Exams cannot creep up on you, they have no appendages to perform that task. 

Being ready is the key. Little and often will make a massive difference in the long run. 

"I'll do it tomorrow" does not help you today.

Good luck and have a good start in September.
