It was definitely a step up from GCSE which I found pretty easy. The amount of new vocab one has to absorb is probably the hardest thing because at GCSE all the words you're likely to have in the exam are in the textbook.

Exam technique is the hardest part and you just have to learn what the examiners are looking for. I got a B in my mock reading, writing and listening but once i improved my technique i got 99% in my real AS reading, writing and listening. So you'll get used to it eventually don't worry

Thanks I got an A at GCSE with no effort but am really struggling with AS at the moment, despite the fact that it's the subject I am now putting the most time into.

Hi, I'm doing AS Spanish and for some reason I am just not improving in my speaking. Since the start of September I have been having speaking practice with a spanish speaker for 15-20 minutes a week and my grade isn't moving up! Did it take you a while to master the speaking? Have you got any tips?
Thank you

I don't remember having trouble with the speaking, although we seemed to do a fair bit at GCSE (including unexpected questions etc.) so it was never a big thing jumping up to A-level.

Mastering grammar as always is the key to improving speaking I feel.

What part of speaking are you having problems with? Fluency? I agree with O133 that the best way to improve is to be sure of your grammar constructions and also being able to introduce a wide range of expressions. Maybe try reading aloud to develop a better sense of the language and to make it sound more natural.

Thank you, yeah we have only looked at a few tenses so maybe once I have looked at a few more my grammar will be more varied and like you say my speaking might improve.

Thanks, yeah it would be fluency and grammar. Like I said maybe once I've been introduced to more tenses (at AS- not just the ones I can remember from GCSE) my grammar will pick up and fluency improve.

Yeah, it's practice using them on the spot that you'll need too.
