Ah AQA French, I'm doing the same speaking CA so welcome to the club

I'll need to find my notes for it but basically what I did was talk about what causes the pollution in my town, what the effects are and what could be done to solve it. I also tried to link the causes and effects where I could.

I did essentially the same thing for the global environmental issues section.

I have a list of phrases somewhere, I'll post them when I find them

No problem

Anyway here are a load of phrases that may be useful.

If you want to talk about "being the mayor of the town" and how you'd improve your town, these may be useful starters:

Si, j'etais le maire de la ville: If I was the town mayor
Si je pouvais: If I could
Si j'avais le choix: If I had the choice
Je construirais: I would build
J'investirais dans: I would invest in
J'améliorerais: I would improve
Je donnerais: I would give
On devrait construire: We should build

Talking about pollution in your local area:

Ce qui m'inquiète le plus c'est: What worries the most is
Ce qui m'énerve, c'est: What annoys me is
Par contre/cependant/en revance/d'un autre côté: However/on the other hand (a few different ways of putting it)
Ce que je déteste, c'est: What I hate is

How we can help the planet:

Je pense que les gens devraient/qu'on devrait: I think people should/we should
Pour protéger la planète, il faut/il est important de: To protect the planet, you must/it is important to
Éteindre la lumiére quand on quitte une pièce: switch off the lights when you leave a room
Économiser l'eau/l'électricité/le chauffage: save water/electricity/heating
Prendre les transports en commun/éviter de prendre la voiture: take public transport/avoid taking the car

I hope that helps!
