    Hi,
    for the past week i've been trying to learn my speaking exam, there are 5 questions and i've learned 3 but the other 2 won't stick in my head, I've tried everything - writing them out over and over again, listening to it everywhere, sticking them around my room, continiously saying them - does anyone else have any other suggestions as I really want an A in this exam. Thank you

    I only have piece of advice that I stuck by when doing AS Level French: don't learn your oral off by heart to the point when you sound like a robot in the recording!

    Nothing is worse to the examiner than practically being able to hear you dig through your brain and repeating the words you've been saying none stop over and over again. An aim is to make your oral sound natural.

    In order to properly learn, I find it's helpful if remember a key sentence or word from each point I should mention and then craft my answer until it's appropriate to actually say the key thing I've learnt!
