    It's honestly bull.
    I don't know how they expect young people to cope with the stress of three or four subjects.
    I'm doing access and Spanish, I've never been in a classroom for Spanish. It's mental the way education works in this country.

    The role of women
    The rebels vs Vidal
    Rations/poverty?

    like "entiendo te punto de vista pero"
    Of course!

    -Entiendo tu punto de vista pero [...] (It's the correct one)
    -Me parece bastante interesante lo que usted dice acerca de [...]
    -Perdone/Disculpe por interrumpir pero [...] (It's a formal one)
    -Aunque nadie duda sobre [...], es interesante remarcar que [...]
    -En lo que respecta en este tema, me gustaría enfatizar [...]

    I can give you more debate expressions if you want. Also, you don't have to worry if something is misspelt, I'm a Spanish native speaker

    Good luck!!!

    Refugees: they seem to want to talk about them living in the same place and not integrating into society.

    First of all, do not feel nervous. All the Spanish vocabulary, grammar, etc, are in your head.

    If you want to gather information for preparing your speaking, you can look for BBC's articles which are related to refugees. For example, mafias are preying refugees to steal their organs such as kidneys

    Very best of luck!!!

    Forget speaking which I'm going to flop because I have 0 fluency (plus I haven't prepared my answers for the cultural topics I just dont have the time)

    I'm more worried about the resit. I wish I never opted to pay for the resit, there's no way I can get an A overall.( got a B last year) and I am flopping this year lol

    Anywayssss I came across this AS question and I don't know how to answer it "ahora los jovenes no valoran la familia" estas de acuerdo?

    Also how would I express this advantage of tv, some programmes explore contraversial topics that are often stigmatized - sexuality, mental health. This helps to raise awareness about these issues, especially when parents often find it hard to talk about these things. For a young person, it can give them guidance and a sense of identity? ? Inthis way, it helps them to explore different perspectives, learn more about themself which in turn (help I don't know how to finish)
    Does this point make sense? Or am I just waffling
