    For some reason, I've left the majority of my revision for french till 2 days before the exam. I've done quite a few past papers in class and at home and have consistently got A*s in them, but I just haven't bothered sitting down and properly learning some vocab. That's today and tomorrow's job, I've decided. Learning 16 pages of vocab in 2 days xD I've already done 6 and tested myself in the last hour and a half, so it's going well so far. Join me fellow crammers! xD

    "étant donné que" can be used as an alternative word to "parce que" so it means something like "because", I guess? :P but it's not as if that word is going to help in the exams.

    Yes, for example; j'ai l'intention d'aller au bord de la mer étant donné que....

    or it can be translated as 'given that'

    so, étant donné que le billet n'est pas cher, j'utiliserai....

    And it'll help for a french exam because it's a french word.

    Not for AQA french. It requires the bare minimum knowledge of french.

    "I have the intention to go to the seaside given that..."
    "Given that the ticket is not expensive, I will use it" ???

    It's more useful for the controlled assessments but sure.

    Why would you use google translate to translate such simple sentence. Also, google translate doesn't translate in context, it translate word for word.

    correct translation is

    i intend to go to the seaside because

    given that the ticket isn't expensive, I will use...

    Je parle le francais couramment donc je sais ce que je suis dis..

    I didn't touch google translate. ._.

    Google translate says:
    "I intend to go to the seaside because .... "
    "since the ticket is cheap, I will use .... "

    Cramming is just daft for language learning, will serve no benefit in the long run, and just lull you into a false sense of ability if you do fluke an A*

    I've not actually not literally sat down and learnt vocabulary from a list; I just learnt it as I went through the course when doing practice reading and listening? Is it only me who did this?

    That's very true. Vocabulary should be acquired over a period of time; this can be then further consolidated by using the vocabulary in one's work.

    Although, for GCSE and even A-level, vocabulary cramming is somewhat effective when the exam is in the succeeding days.
