    Does anyone have any idea how to revise for the essay part of Spanish? For example I’m doing the movie “Solas” and we will be asked about a certain character or something and will have to write an essay in the exam, the thing is I depend on google translate a bit too much and I would have no idea how to construct and essay from scratch... thank you

    ur teacher should tell you how to structure one/google if you want, from there its mostly practise-have a list of idioms/high level phrases to use in ur essays, over time they will come natural. for now its quite early, i wouldnt worry about getting high grades , just write simple,coherent essays that make sense to slowly get less dependant on google translate-nothing worse than writing a load of waffle in another language
    over time ur knowledge of the film will improve, dont worry about using google for the film-you dont know much atm no doubt

    Ok thank you, I am trying to slowly use google less and less but sometimes if I don’t use it I wouldn’t get my work done with the amount one of my spanish teachers sets. Thanks again
