Hi everyone,

I've been studying Spanish since year 7 (I'm in year 13 now) and just recently I have realised that I actually don't know how to study it and be prepared for the exam. Oral is easy however its the paper that I find tricky. How do you study for it? I watch many spanish movies and my vocab is good but I always struggle with writing.. any tips? My mock is coming up soon and I'm hoping to get a good grade.

Also.. how can I study grammar and make it stick? I always study one tense and then forget it, not sure how to remember it for a longer period of time..

Help much appreciated

hey I'm in the same boat with regards to how long we've been learning it may be we can muddle through this year too!
For grammar I made mind maps of every tense showing how to form it, the endings, when/why it's used and a list of the irregulars. After this i got a whiteboard and wrote and rewrote every tense and irregular until I knew them and repeated this more or less everyday...
Also this page: is amazing for practising all your tenses in all the forms!
As for the writing you can bring your mark up with a wide range of tenses, idiomatic expressions and strong, developed and supported opinion but also showing a wide range of factors
hope that helps a bit?
