I am studying French AS and going through the textbook to make vocabulary lists for the whole specification- just wondering if anyone has already done the French AQA AS and if so do you have any revision guides or vocabulary? Also, any top tips to get full marks?? I have the oral around 16th March THIS YEAR ((

Thanks in advance DD

Hey I am doing AS French this year also, and the book that I am finding great for writing essays and great for writing out answers for orals is 'Mot a Mot', I bought mine on Amazon http://www.amazon.co.uk/Mot-New-Adva...ords=mot+a+mot

Hope this helps

Mot à mot is useful, as IrishChick says. Beware, however, of reproducing beautiful phrases and then linking them together with sloppy grammar! A good grammar revision book I recommend to everyone is this one: http://www.amazon.co.uk/French-Gramm.../dp/095706120X If you're aiming for top grades your grammar needs to be excellent.

The secret for a top marks in the oral exam is preparation. Make sure you have ready answers for all the sorts of questions the examiner might throw at you - that doesn't mean writing out reams and reams of answers and learning them by heart (although I know some students who do just that); but it means having an idea of what your answer is likely to be. For example, if the examiner asks you Que faites-vous pour rester en forme? you don't want to waste time by having to add up mentally minutes of weekly exercise, and then working out whether or not you are getting your five-a-day!
