    I don't know what topic to chose for the Oral Presentation. Mon école, mes loisirs, ma ville; they all are too common! And I don't want to take something difficult as 'Racisme' because I know I can't reply to any questions asked on it. I don't know why but whenever I speak in French, I think correctly but when I speak, I just mess it all up. I said 'Je vais allé'! My listening goes horrible! It's okay until the 1st exercise, but from the second exercise I don't understand anything. My writing, I would say, is fairly okay. I will literally panic haha. Please suggest what I should do; suggest any material that helped you, any pattern that you followed, any quizlet that helped you. Seriously. Anything. Thank you so so much! **sends virtual hugs**

    "Je vais aller" is correct ("I'm going to go") and sounds the same, so it might have sounded alright, depending on the context

    I would suggest that you keep your presentation topic simple if you're not confident, because you won't get additional marks for choosing a complicated topic. It's ok to do a common topic if you put your own twist on it; your hobbies aren't going to be the same as everyone else's It might be a good idea to give your presentation on a specific personal experience that you've had, for example a holiday or something memorable you've done. That way, it would be simple to discuss and answer questions on but still interesting and a bit unique.

    The key to listening and speaking is literally just practice; you need to become comfortable with the language so that it feels natural to listen to and speak it. YouTube is the main "resource" I used to get comfortable the Francophone YT community is quite big, so you'll probably find something you like and watching videos in French for leisure will work wonders for your listening confidence, as well as your vocab.

    I was on Edexcel last year and I got an A. Honestly, Quizlet is a really good resource, have a look at study sets made on there. In terms of improving your listening skills, try listening to French podcasts and even try watching french movies with subtitles. Eve Bennett's revision channel on youtube is really good, she has a video about this on there. Good luck!
