    Hi, I was wondering if anyone would be able to offer me a few tips and guidance for the french listening papers.
    I get A*s in my reading, however, I usually get high B's or low A's in listening.
    Does anyone know how I can improve? How should I approach the listening? What can I do as revision to get an A* in listening? Thanks

    Hiya! I moved this to the Foreign Languages forum for you - you're more likely to get a good answer here

    Same here i really want atleast an A in listening because i've got Bs so far in my mocks. the one thing i notice is that the words they say are words we know as A* reading students, it's just we cant recognise them when said. for example Aider - to help, could be said as d'aider m'aider l'aider, which sounds like 3 different words due to the preposition. if you can overcome that then that will help you recognise a lot of words because i think they tend to use those verbs starting with vowels as their main trick.
    another example is Eau - l'eau - d'eau etc

    Yeah I totally agree with you, i have my reading and listening exam on Tuesday so I'm going to listen to how certain french words are said and hopefully that will work.
    Good luck!!
