    I'm stressing out I'm a private candidate for A2 french and for the whole year my teacher did BARELY anything to help me. My speaking exam is literally in like 3 weeks and my gcses are so close too and I haven't written up the second cultural topic (painter) and I feel that I've chosen a really hard one and I hate asking my mum for help (she speaks french) cos she just accuses me saying it's my fault and stresses me out even more! I can't find ANY examples on the internet or an exemplar with high marks cos I wanna get an A and I thought if I get an A/A* for speaking and a B for the main paper I could average out as an A but I REALLY REALLY REALLY don't wanna get a C or something. Last year for AS the teacher was useless again and I was only informed about the exams 2 WEEKS before so I prepared in those two weeks and miraculously I did well in speaking but only got a C in the main paper :/

    I have to talk about EDGAR DEGAS and I've been giving some next up complex plan. PLEASE SOMEONE HELP ME I CRIED.

    I wrote the intro but my teacher told me to start all over again!

    The first point says "1. Introduce Degas - Life - start of career" but do I add in how over the years he learnt different techniques and how he preferred to be called a realist rather than an impressionist and how his eyesight became worse etc etc?

    I'm sure you're good at french :yep:

    To have the highest marks possible you need to think in french - literally -
    To do so, I suggest you to listen to french music EVERY DAY, to watch 10min of the french news every day , to start watching movies in french WITH ENGLISH SUBTITLES (and try to concentrate on the new words you hear and relate them to the subtitles ) and if you can read a few pages of a french book every day before you go to sleep it's awesome.

    If you do that, you'll improve A LOT really quickly, that's how I learned english myself :yep:

    If you wanna talk to a native to practise , don't hesitate to PM me

    And also if you ever need help, tag me/ PM me, I'd be happy to help :hugs:
