    Hello everyone, I'd like to begin by saying I'm not too sure what I'm doing, as this is my first time posting haha
    I opted to take both French and German at gsce, as I consider them one of my stronger subjects. I am currently in year 10, and I'm not sure if I should be doing revision this early on, but I just want to ground myself with all of the grammar points, vocabulary etc, since there is so much more to learn for the new 2018 spec! So if you have any revision tips, websites, books, etc that would be helpful (preferably for AQA) please share

    Definitely use Memrise and/or Quizlet. Go on there and type in your exam board, all important topic related words should be there.

    Duolingo is also really good for going over grammar and picking up new vocab

    slowgerman is such a good website; its a woman who speaks german in a slower speech and she's written all her transcripts in the description box underneath each podcast; it's a good way to get used to the German speech. I also think watching german/french translations of favourite cartoons/movies is a good idea.

    Good luck with 2 languages! I am in year 11 doing french and german like you, kind of regretting it tbh. The way my school works, my teacher has to set all the controlled assessments within days of each other so I end up missing one and now i'm behind in both languages :/ Also you will most probably get them mixed up, but think about it this way: if you are in an exam doing french writing (controlled assessment already prepared) and forget the french word but you know the german, write the german instead. you get deducted less than if you write it in english
    Best of luck and if you need help or anything just message me x
