    ALSO can we use phrases/paragraphs we used in the speaking exam in the essay? Will they notice? I want to reuse some stuff since it's burned into my memory. If they do notice will it affect my grade negatively in some way?
    yeah definitely, the same person doesn't mark your writing and speaking

    I think there is virtually a 0% chance that they will notice you used it in your speaking exam as the speaking exam and paper are marked independently of each other

    Perhaps a question on minor characters? Since they've always asked qustions on the main characters. I'm doing Como agua as well!

    65874924[/url]]Does anyone have predictions for history essays?
    Also my content for the essay is fine but I always struggle with grammar and wondering how to improve this?
    I think and my teacher also thinks it's gonna be an essay on events or one of them at least, and grammar wise languages.org has some good exercises on there for grammar :-) and just doing loads of translation practice cos they normally have good grammar in them

    Ooo that's a good shout! So who would you speak about? Gertrudis and Rosaura? Nacha? In a weird way, I feel all the characters are pretty major in their own way, but I suppose they'd make sense.

    How are you feeling for the exam?

    I would probably talk about Mama Elena and Nacha, and how they contribute to the theme of tradition/food.
    I'm actually so worried, since both the French and German papers seemed to be really nasty. I desperately need an A in Spanish to get into uni

    Have you looked at www.espanish.org.uk? They have a ton of worksheets that include spanish to english, and vice versa, translations. They seem to be of a similar level to the real exam too!

    That's true - it's so tough to know what to revise for the essay because it can be so broad! How many quotes are you learning? Or how are you choosing which ones to learn?
