    I've just finished A2 AQA French - I studied Moliere's L'Avare and WW2 in France
    For the exam I found the essay the hardest bit, my advice is to do a lot of past questions and try and perfect them so you have enough to say in the exam, I did about 6 and in the exam I found it quite easy
    Learn vocabulary!!
    For the speaking exam, meet up with people in your class and do a bit of speaking at least once a week, it really helps improve fluency and you can learn new ideas to use in the exam
    If you have any questions I'm happy to answer them

    Ahh I found it a bit of a slog, it's like GCSE history in French so it's quite challenging, luckily you only have to write about one topic in the exam, so I chose the play. I found L'Avare rather dull at the start, what I did is I had an exercise book and translated it- writing notes in French about the characters and summarising each scene, it was really useful for essay writing

    you have to speak about both your topics - for WW2 I did mindmaps of each significant person and event - l'armistice, Pétain, Guy Moquet etc. so everything was really clear for the exam
    WW2 was really interesting though, especially since I didn't know a lot at the start about the occupation

    Are you doing WW2 as your other topic?
