    I am very new to this site so sorry if this causes any problems.

    I have my French GCSE (AQA) sometime mid May. My listening and reading are on the same day, each are worth 20%

    I am hopeless at French and my teacher really isn't much help, like a lot of people I chose a language because we were told it will soon be necessary. My french exams are the exams I am most worried about as I am aiming to get at least a B but I can't see that happening without help.

    I am in desperate need of help with my listening. I really just cannot make sense of what is being said, they talk so fast! :confused: I will need to learn vocabulary so I will do that, any advice for that would be great. The problem is I just cannot pick up what has been said.

    Have any of you had this problem? How did you/do you think you would get out of this situation? I am alright with reading but any help would also be appreciated.
    This is istening (and reading) higher tier if that makes any difference.

    Try getting a revision guide for listening exercises, the best thing you can do is keep practising! See if you can find one with a CD and a transcript, so you can read along as they are talking. There are also exercises on the bbc website.

    If you are feeling confident with your writing, reading and speaking, you don't really need to worry about your listening as it won't bring your grade down by much at all

    all you need to do is listen for words you may no. if its a sentance talking about smoking for example, if you dont know any of the words exept for ' fumer ' (smoke) then you should be able to pick it up. thats what i did for my mock.
