    Use duolingo for pronunciation and use quizlet for vocab and writing and reading. For reading you could also change the language in your phone to french if you want. For listening try to listen to french songs and you could also try and translate the meaning and so you also learn vocab. Learn key question words e.g Qu'est que c'est ton favourite .......
    Use questions that you can adapt to different themes that will make your life easier. Also vocab is the key to everything like in listening they will use less common words for things like everyone know cependant but do they know pourtant.

    Ok so I had a French exchange last year and it helped MASSIVELY with my French and to be honest it’s only deteriorated since then because of a pretty rubbish teacher. So when you go to France try your hardest to speak to French people, listen to and read the news a much as possible. Apart from that go through the suggested oral questions and make notes on what you’d answer. I wouldn’t recommend writing answers for every question because firstly that’s a hella lot of work, and you’re screwed if you blank in the exam. Also there’s no guarantee that you will have written answers for every single question that could come up. Good luck revising, one month is more than enough if you try hard. I have a week until my French speaking exam and I wish I started revising earlier.
