    I'm just wondering what are the best things to include for my French writing on holidays because I'm struggling to get it down to the word count.

    I'm doing that for my speaking. It would help if you talk about real experiences.
    Talk about where you will go in the future(make use of future conditional tense)
    How you got there(plane, train, car...)
    How many people are in your family(nous sommes quatre personnes...)
    Talk about anything related to that country(Barcelon- talk about contrast between modern and Catalan architecture)
    Something you looked forward to(FC Barca stadium?)
    Where you stayed, and how close it was to any metro stations or bus stations
    What you did
    Specialities(food, art..)
    Overall impression of city

    Hopefully you can build up your texts with this foundation!

    Feel free to add a couple of catastrophes into your holiday e.g. mum left the passports at home, no room at the hotel, sister broke her leg, brother got eaten by a shark etc. They absolutely love it because it makes your writing more interesting! good luck and I really hope you do well
