    Now that it's January, I'm sure that everyone's become a bit more conscious of exams in the next few months, and I'm planning to do a bit of light revision for all of my subjects.

    However, I'm unsure of how to revise AS French, as languages just aren't like other subjects at AS. Those who have done A level languages before, what did you did you do outside of lessons in the run up to exams? If it's of any importance, I'm aiming for a mid to high A and my board is AQA.

    Thanks.

    I did AQA German, and topic-specific vocab was definitely a big thing

    I'm not doing AS language now, but I'm planning to. However my older siblings both did Spanish A-level and got an A*. They told me what really help was not only studying vocabulary, but simply talking to their friends from their class in spanish nonstop, including texting one another to practise their writing skills in the topic areas their course covered (eg world affairs). They also listened to the Spanish radio to get used to the accent and to be better prepared for the listening exams.
    I hoped this helped

    Definitely learn lots of topic-specific vocab! Quizlet.com is a great website for learning vocab, if you start making the flashcards now you'll have loads for when revision really kicks in nearer to exams! You can also get the app on your phone to practice on the go, that's what really helped me
