I am taking French for GSCE but I don't know which textbooks would be most helpful.
I am very good at French and to get A* at GSCE my teacher said I need more new vocabulary and to improve my listening

I haven't studied French since school but in my adult years I have studied Italian and Spanish. The best resources I know for listening would be the assimil series. It is a French company that is extremely popular on the continent. You can pick the book up "french with ease" for around £20. Each lesson is a short dialogue that introduces new grammar and vocab as it goes. There are around 100 lessons in the with ease series. Vocab wise you will reach 3000 words or so. I did the Italian and Spanish version in the passive wave and then moved onto native materials for listening. Depending on your level, you could start watching series dubbed into French witg the French subtitles to aid. Don't put English subtitles on because your brain will only concentrate on the one it understands and you will learn nothing.

Thank you
Why dismiss what I said? If you read any post from anyone that's a polyglot you will find assimil to be the number one method.

Oh my god I'm very sorry I thought I replied to you but my phone must have mixed up or something.Your comment was most helpful and in fact I'm going to try what you advised me to.I'm new here so I sometimes get into little muddles.
Anyway thank you a lot for taking your time to answer this.
