Spanish Speaking Coursework Tips watch

    • Thread Starter

    In a week I will be sitting my GCSE Spanish speaking coursework, and was looking for some tips. I struggle to remember things without a prompt, and found it hard enough doing the English speaking/listening section of the GCSEs, and that had a prompt. My accent is terrible (I'm working on it,) I barely remember the words, let alone the order and we've been given half as much time as we're usually given.

    Any tips and I would be eternally grateful. (And flashcards don't work for me, sorry.)

    My main piece of advice is always not to memorise prescripted responses. Yes, write some out so you have an idea of what to say but don't memorise whole paragraphs. Try and make sure you know the language. Talk to yourself Spanish, however much you can. Think up random sentences in Spanish, constantly trying to use the best grammar and vocab you can. This is how I learned, and it sure worked! I do the same at AS, and it still works.
    ¡Buena suerte, espero que el examen pase bien!
