    How is everyone doing GCSE Spanish going to revise for their reading and listening exams? Could you suggest ways / resources to revise from?

    Also, I have found many past papers for spanish listening's but I can't seem to find the speaking (tape/audio) to go with it, & so can't do the test. Does anyone have any audio's they could send me so I can do the listening papers?

    Thank You =)

    Hey, I'm actually crapping myself for the Spanish exams! They've attached the transcript with the past paper so I guess you have to do it from that or get someone to read it to you while you do the paper.

    I'm basically just going to learn all the vocab and try and do some past papers...I'm really worried since I haven't started revising but hopefully I'll do that! wbu?

    I know, it would have been easier if they just left the audio, because we could practise it properly!

    Same, I think theres 4 main topics to learn from.. So i will just learn the vocab from theree.. its hard though..

    Good Luck

    I'd say it'll be far more enriching than critical thinking

    PS Spanish is awesome

    Yeah, do you think we'll be okay if we just learn the vocabulary?
    When we did past papers in school I came across all these words that I didn't know and I'm not even sure they're on the vocab lists for AQA. Where are you getting your vocabulary lists?
    You too

    I think its better to do practise papers aswell, from the AQA website.
    I want to find a way to get the audio tapes - if you find out please send me them.
    From languages online, linguascope and kerboodle.
    Where are you getting yours from?
    At least we have done some of our GCSE - speakings and writings

    My school uses some book called "Mira" and they make a list of vocab for us from that :\ Yeah I guess that's true, 60% done with but the 40% can still make a big difference :| I really want to get an A* but the past papers I did at school I got Cs and Ds in, with no revision. I hope with revision it'll be significantly better. My oral and writing were A/A*.

    Sure if I find the audio's I'll send them but I think your best bet at the moment is to get someone to read them reasonably fast for you, that's what I'm going to do instead of using a transcript :\

    Have you done any past papers yet? What have you been getting?

    My school also uses that book. They didn't make us a vocab list though
    Thats true, 40% can make a big difference.
    Same, in school i gets C's and I find the papers very hard!
    I don't know my grades of my orals / speakings? I know the marks i got.. How did you work out the grades?

    At the end of the Mira topics there's a summary sheet that sums up the topic, I'm just going to memorize that vocab, I got that book from my cousin since the school gave each pupil one, they didn't at our school, we just got photocopies.
    And I knooow, the past papers are flipping hell, but I did them without revision so I really hope they're not an accurate calculation of what I get
    And my teacher told each pupil their grade What marks did you get?

    I think about 30ish vaguely, I really can't remember but you should ask your spanish teacher the boundaries
    And an absolute fail, I haven't revised ANYTHING apart from a bit of geography and english...night before revision always seems to cut it, I hope it does this time! For some reason, the night before I'm forced to revise so I revise best :\
    I'm doing An Inspector Calls and Of mice and men, wbu?
    How's your revision going?
    I'm actually really worried about Spanish :| Where are you getting the vocab to learn from?
