    Hey there,

    I'm currently taking Spanish at A level, and loving it, but I remember when I was your age I was still struggling with Spanish.

    I would recommend initially to try out a few free language learning websites, my personal favourite is Duolingo - you can quite easily pick up a whole bunch of vocabulary from that and it can actually be quite fun to do while on the bus to school on your phone to pass the time (I sound like an advert but that app really helped rescue my Spanish in year 10).

    On top of that, try to make Spanish fun, and not a chore! For this I would recommend listening to Spanish music e.g. shakira (suerte is her best song in my opinion), manu chao (me gustas tu is really easy to understand and great fun). I would also recommend watching youtube videos/films/tv shows that are Spanish (CuriosaMente is a fun random facts spanish youtube channel).

    Finally - I don't know if this point applies to you, but it certainly did to me, playing video games in Spanish really helps - generally the more that you surround yourself in the language, the easier it will be in the class, if you do it right, then you can get through your GCSEs like a walk in the park

    Tl;dr get Spanish videos/music/games all around you as the more that you are immersed in Spanish the easier it becomes.

    I hope that this helps you somewhat
