Hey Oliviaerinhughes!

Last year, we used the BrightRED CfE Higher French Study Guide and Leckie & Leckie CfE Higher French Success Guide. They were quite useful, I think. We didn't use this book as much, but the How to Pass Higher French for CfE by Douglas Angus is supposed to be quite good too.

If you don't yet have a French dictionary of your own, I recommend the Collins French Dictionary with Grammar (the blue and yellow or blue and red one). The middle section is good at helping with formulating phrases.

Also, our teacher gave us lots of her own homemade materials, and they are what we used the bulk of the time alongside the textbooks I've mentioned.

That's about it. If I see something else useful, I'll come back here and let you all know.

Bonne chance!

Does anyone have a good method to answer the “consider the article as a whole” question at the end of the reading paper??
I really don’t know how to answer these type of questions so any help is appreciated

What does everyone predict the personal response essay (after listening) will be on?
The personal response essay has never been on technology but I'm not sure whether that makes it more or less likely, probably less. I'm hoping for healthy lifestyles but I doubt it will come up.

my teacher says think of it like an english close reading question, quote the main ideas the question asks for in french and translate them so its like statement quote analysis response and do at least two

That’s a really good idea, my usual method is just leaving out the 2 mark question cause a) I have no clue what to write and b) I’m a bit lazy 😂 determined to make an attempt at it on Thursday tho hahahaha
