    I have to learn a 240 word essay for a Spanish exam on Tuesday - this is worth 15% of my final grade. I don't understand how I can learn it and I only have 2 days left until the exam. I know 2/5 paragraphs so far. Any advice? Please help

    Ah throwback to the GCSE days, I always just kept writing it out and covering it while writing it out.

    Record yourself while saying it and then keep replaying it

    That's what I have been doing! I guess I'm just going have to keep on doing it until it clicks - thank you

    It's good to know it word perfectly, but it's better to understand the stock phrases, and have them at your fingertips for applying in the specific context. Otherwise you'll end up writing a word-perfect essay that doesn't answer the question.

    Take it a sentence at a time. Read over it, write it and say it until you know it off by heart. When I was in Year 11, people in my class also used to record themselves saying it and then listen to it on repeat and said that helped

    Good luck!

    Last year I literally just memoried my spanish essays and then repeated them! The only way you can learn them is by writing them and learning it line by line, with repitition.
    Best of luck!x
