    This year I will be taking the newly reformed AQA French GCSE (9-1) but the one aspect of the subject that I'm really struggling with is the listening exam.

    I'm currently a 7 in reading and an 8/9 in speaking and writing, but the best for listening I can manage is a 4 so far.

    Is there anything I can do to improve that skill? In the exam, I can hardly even understand what they're saying; it all just goes too quick to me and it simply sounds like a murmur all the way through, so I just resort to guessing and even then it's not really an educated guess.

    Some tips would be greatly appreciated, merci beaucoup.

    ^^^^^ pretty good advice also i'd suggest rather than trying to understand the whole thing try listening for just some key words that you are familiar with and then getting the gist of the sentence from that

    Watch french films with english subtitles and try to listen to the french

    Listen to french songs and try to listen out for words you recognise

    Try french radio?

    Youtube videos for french learning

    Past papers
What's the best type of cheese?
