    Hi, I'm currently writing my Spanish controlled assessment for Spanish GCSE and it's about movies. I have to write a film review about a movie of my choice (I've chosen Harry Potter) and I really want an A* for this piece of writing.

    So I just want to know if there are any A* phrases I could use to boost my grade and what the present subjunctive is and how to use it. Thankyou

    se trata de - it's about
    diri'a que - i would say
    conmover - to move (emotionally)
    teniendo en cuenta que - taking into consideration that
    no podi'a haber sido mas - it could not have been more

    (the ' means it the letter before has an accent on it)
