    I'm sitting WJEC French and Spanish in May and I was wondering if anyone has some particularly effective ways of revising for languages as it is an area where I struggle.

    Just the reading/listening as I have done all my Controlled Assessments

    Thanks

    i've got my french reading and listening in may too. the way i am revising for it, is by making a vocab page for each topics and witting down the french and the english for the words i dont know. Also, bitesize is a good website to practice for your listening! hope this helped

    I'm also doing the WJEC French exams in May and to revise I've basically been going over vocabulary, past exam papers, the usual stuff. Although I've also been reading French news online such as LeMonde.Fr and 1jour1actu - they're both really good for finding new vocabulary and just practising reading. I also bought some French magazines from WHSmith and I've been reading them too which is really helpful for vocab as a lot of vocab in there has come up in past papers I've been doing.

    Good luck to everyone
