    So I'm doing AS retake & A2 orals within 12 days of eachother, how do you revise!? My topic is vegetarianism, so I've researched that thoroughly & got vocab, but I'm pretty shaky on my grammar orally and my accent is atrocious, so help!

    1. Learn your chosen topic by heart and script in pauses so it sounds more natural.

    2. Make sure you know common irregular grammar points and the regular stuff well and if you can't remember how to conjugate it, use a modal verb (pouvoir, devoir ect.) + infinitive. This works every time

    3. Have specific vocabulary for each topic. If you're not good at remembering stuff, find out some cognates.

    4. When you speak to people in English translate into French in your head until you naturally do it.

    5. To sort out the accent watch French movies and repeat what they say. Also use www.text-to-speech.imtranslator.net for any words you have trouble with + your whole chosen topic. The website says in what you type, so it's also a great way to learn things!

    6. In the exam, try to act. pretend you're in a Parisien cafe or something!

    Hope this stuff helps you
