    I am predicted a C because of surprise vocab tests and I normally study before hand when I know that an exam is happening.

    How can I learn all of the tenses? Please no comments like "speak french more often" or "just revise", I need something that someone did - and more importantly, something that worked.

    I have already memorized around 51% of the 156 vocabulary terms I was supposed to learn this term through Quizlet, and I will continue until I can get 100%.

    Any advice? I can work late nights, and cannot wake up early in the mornings. Last year I got a B in the exam.

    Thanks!

    Read French books, listen to French music/podcasts, speak more French and write something in French using a new tense with a different subject (e.g m, f, pl).

    Learning tenses is about understanding how they work and finding patterns ie: the imperfect and conditional endings are the same, the future and conditional root is the same. Then you just have to practice. Repetition is how memories move into your long-term memory, there's not really a shortcut. Try finding or even making gap-fill exercises for yourself and write sentences including the new tense.

    Hope this helps

    You could get a list with certain words in all tenses (e.g. I am, you (sing) are, he/she/it is, we are, you(pl) are, they are - the English version for "is" , and recite it each day for five-ten minutes. It helps with Latin, and hopefully it will help with French too!
