    So I'm doing AS Spanish and I'm finding it difficult to find lengthy, worthwhile vocab lists; does anybody have any help?
    Also, has anybody got any tips they swear by to get the top grades, for everyone doing Spanish?
    Thanks

    Advanced Spanish Vocabulary by Isabel Melero Orta is a good option - also I suggest a good Spanish (monolingual) dictionary. I recommend "Diccionario para la Enseñanza Lengua Española" published by the Universidad de Alcalá, though I'm sure there are others.

    As for tips, it all comes down to hard work. Revise the best way you learn (using visuals, writing notes, chatting to yourself in the shower etc). You could join a social group or have an "intercambio" with someone who wants to improve their English, for example. Read real Spanish, listen to the news (News in Slow Spanish is a really good one - it's a subscription service but is worth it in my opinion)

    Good luck!
