    Any tips? Anybody have any good phrases I can "throw in" regardless of the topic?

    I have kind of pushed French to the back of mind (the listening/reading/speaking exams seem years ago!) and I hope I haven't forgot any of the good phrases I learnt! The "A" question is always fine, it's just the topic of the "B" which can be a pain.

    I don't know the format of the paper cos we did controlled cwk instead, but use a variety of tenses and put in lots of opinions!
    e.g Je pense que
    Je crois que
    Je suis d'accord/ je ne suis pas d'accord
    A mon avis......

    and use loads of conditional...
    je serais
    j'aurais
    j'irai etc

    especially combined with imperfect
    e.g. si j'avais beaucoup d'argent, j'irai en Afrique

    Also superlatives and comparatives e.g.
    le plus grand
    le meilleur
    le pire
    plus bien que or is it plus bon que?
    etc

    Good luck!

    Wow we didn't have french coursework, I guess Aqa (i think it is) don't do it. All I can think of is in part b) remember that it could be a letter so write 'formally' and use the 'vous' form

    Although the last one is oral section, it still pertains to this section.

    All of this is written by my teacher
