    1) Fashion
    last season
    they give a bad example to young girls and they promote eating disorders
    all sizes must be exactly the same in all shops
    not all shops follow the new law
    dangerous machinery, few breaks and low salaries
    in neighbourhoods in the outskirts of cities
    read the labels well before buying an item

    2) Adverts
    portátil
    cadena de radio
    programa de televisión
    seguro de coche
    compañía financiera
    vacaciones

    3) Something to do with phones?
    mejor cobertura
    guarda tu información personal
    no uses tu móvil en el cine
    sólo envia mensajes importantes
    no uses tu móvil mientras conduces
    no descargues imágenes inadecuadas

    4) Camping thing
    esta primavera
    nada - es gratuita
    los padres deben ser en paro y el hijo debe ser minusválido
    a los que lo pasan mal económicamente en este momento
    una quincena
    la vela y el senderismo
    en zona cantábricas
    después de mejorar sus instalaciones
    a los niños incapacitados

    5) David and Hugo
    F - not his first boyfriend, said he has just broken up with someone
    N - said birthday but didn't specify it was his birthday
    V - something about meeting the next day
    F - they'd already moved in together
    V - question was about knowing what to wear to the wedding, it said they'd already bought their suits
    N? - working in the hotel
    N? - I think it said there were a hundred guests at the wedding but the extract didn't say numbers, can't remember the question that well tbh
    V - boats and cruises

    6) Prison guy
    atraco -> robo
    trató de -> intentó
    enorme -> tremendo
    noticiar -> informar, or vice versa
    think there was another one?
    una solicitud de amistad en Facebook
    tenía acceso a sus datos personales
    lamentó sus acciones
    a través de cartas y llamadas telefónicas
    se van a comprometer

    7) Festivals
    idk these answers sorry

    8) Gap fill - order is completely wrong, sorry
    madrugada
    lata
    aumentar
    recomienda
    venta
    problemas
    there were some more

    9) Grammar gap fill
    tuvieran
    conozco
    descubierto
    habrá
    pusieron/ponían
    dedicaba
    demasiado
    fría
    ningún
    vaya

    It's a bit blank sorry and questions/answers might be in the wrong order, but hopefully others can contribute or something

    It's agua frío because agua is masculine


    Posted from TSR Mobile
    No it is fria, because agua is feminine. The only reason it's not la agua, is because them it's a double a sound which the Spanish don't do, in conjugations and stuff, again is feminine.

    and for the last question of the prison guy, I got "se van a comprometer"
    Do you remember if in the text, it said ' se van a comprometer' because i thought it said that like once he's done with jail 'se comprometen.'
    did you include the van a yourself or was it in the text to copy directly?

    AS is 50% of the overall A-Level. 60 for AS speaking, 140 for AS writing, same again for A2.
    I wouldn't really bother. I did some stuff on poverty and environment over summer that my teachers gave us as optional work and I never used it once this year. Maybe consolidate grammar and tenses, also possibly read/watch/research whatever you're doing for the culture topics, but in my opinion learning content isn't worth it so much.

    Maybe? WordReference lists borough as a translation for barrio.

    Yeahhhh I think so , there was a lot of unknown vocab, in hindsight it wasn't as bad as I thought tbh ! And the essay's were very strange

    I am pretty sure it was "se van a comprometer", because that was the only sentence at the end that referred to them both. Also I looked up "comprometer" on spanishdict and amongst the range of translations, "to get engaged" was one. So makes the most sense to me imo
