    I have a French GCSE Speaking test in four days. Does anyone have any good phrases I could put in my piece of work to get an A*?

    The topic is about : Leisure/Holidays

    Past holiday
    Why holidays are important
    Your favorite type of holiday and such...

    I don't think that it's necessary to have holidays abroad every year.
    It's subjunctive, so that's like A at AS level.

    i don't know exactly how to say this in french, but it should be easy to figure out how, my teacher told us to try and include three tenses in our orals, so i used:
    'next year, i'd like to go to __________ because of the ___________ but my mum doesn't like the __________'

    You'd want to use 'à cause de' if you want to say 'beacuse of...'. If you wanted to say 'because it's sunny' or whatever, you could use 'puisque' as well.

    If you want to get an A* they are gonna ask you questions that you aren't expecting to see whether you can actually converse instead of memorise
