    Post good idioms below, interesting to see what you can come up with

    (Original post by CalCon05)
    I am in desperate need of A* phrase / sentences/ paragraphs that are related to the the following criteria:
    -Describe school
    -Compare to primary school
    -Favourite aspects of school life
    -Future plans
    -How could I improve school life/ the school
    Thank you so much, I will be forever in your debt
    If you're expecting someone to write your essay from scratch then you'll be sorely disappointed.

    It would be much better to make a good effort at it and paste here your attempts so that native speakers such as myself can assist your further

    From my personal experiences with GCSE Spanish, there are a few aspects to avoid and key factors to include.
    So avoid:
    Cliches "que sera sera" for example
    Basic sentence structure "el edificio es feo." ""Me gusta educacion fisica"
    Long, boring paragraphs. Keep it short and and concise

    Remember to include
    idioms - Collins does a great idioms book
    A range of sentence structure ie "me gusta las clases de ingles, porque el profesor lo hace interesante, asi es muy emocionante"
    Use a lot of opinions also, and use a thesaurus for better, more sophisticated language
How are you feeling in the run-up to Results Day 2018?
