I am currently doing AQA AS french and have made notes that I hope cover every essay question that can be asked for units 1 and 3 - and I am ignoring units 2 and 4 as I don't have much to say about most of the topics in them.

At least 1 of the 3 essay questions will be from unit 1 or 3.

Note: A lot of the content has been taken from french websites and all of it has been checked by french natives so should be mostly correct

Can you advise about:

- Whether or not they actually cover everything that can be asked
- How I should make them more concise
- Any other advise for preparing for the essay part of the exam

Thanks so much

(Les media = unit 1, la santé = unit 3)

EDIT:

Added reformatted notes for la santé units with english translations

EDIT: Of course when it says ils faites, it means ils font

EDIT: I have added reformatted notes for les media unit, they are in a table with fr/eng

EDIT: Updated La santé/ mode de vie outline with:
- Better sport advantages/ dangers
+ Health problems for:
  • Bad diet
  • Smoking
  • Alcohol
  • Drugs

They are brilliant! The phrases will be useful to slot into both speaking and writing exams. You've made sure to include positives and negatives for a lot of topics also. I'm also doing AS French and you've definitely given me lots of inspiration for my own notes!

thanks, I hope they will save you time - each topic took ~2hrs.

but I'm still really worried about remembering the points and generally how to prepare for the essay part of the exam (have got mostly Cs and Ds before and one B.... back in november )

I feel you It is so difficult, I am seriously worried about French in general. I'm on CCEA who seem to be particularly picky - dreading my speaking exam especially!

The health problems notes have also served as a biology lesson lol - you'll see a lot of "technical" language there

Note: It might be good to just write about portables/internet for nouvelles technologies as they may not like hearing about washing machines/electricity !

Oh yeah sorry I didn't read your full post >.< I'm going all in on sports and music! one of them is bound to come up since they both haven't come up since 2009/2010 someone please back me up with this so I'll feel better xD

I told my tutor about publicité might be a possibility but she says it's unlikely since it was on the 2012 one? About the smoking one too... They had the alcohol one last year right? I doubt they'd do something similar but if anyone is an expert with predictions please correct me!
