[HELP ASAP] Revising from French spec. Is it safe? watch

    • Thread Starter

    I have a reading and writing exam soon, so to revise I am going to use the French specification, to learn the vocabs. Is this a good idea ? I also have to learn how to conjugate and use different tenses.

    Here is a link to the spec: http://www.aqa.org.uk/subjects/langu...se/french-8658


    What our teacher has done is print out the vocab from the spec and given each of us a highlighter. Basically, we highlight words we know and learn words we don't. It's good, visually, but in practice, it's probably really not helpful.

    To revise vocab, a good way to do it is using Memrise - if you search AQA new specification or something like that, you'll get new spec. It's fun, it's easy and really helps drill vocab into your head.

    As for verbs, using Language Gym is really good practice. It lets you pick the verbs, the pronoun, the tense, the regularity, the theme etc. and you can use it for all tenses.

    But to answer your question, it's probably not safe to revise from the spec. It's very useful to know what you need to know, but having a thick booklet with a lot of words isn't easy. But it might be useful to learn the rubrics.
