    Before you mention, I know year 9 exams mean **** all but I still want to do alright because I am doing it for GCSE (why did I pick it when we didn't have to do a language? I am rubbish at it and should have picked history lol).

    At my school for the exams we are doing a foundation reading / listening.


    I literally cannot do the listening at all.
    Are there any relatively quick ways to get better at it (it is next week lol)?



    But on a side note I am absolutely ****ed for the English exams.

    You could try foundation past papers or listen to a French film with English subtitles (that's what I did and I guess it worked)

    Doing French A-Level, i'm in Y13.

    Try to listen to as much actual French as you can, e.g. slow French or even the radio.
    Try to watch things you'd normally watch, but in French like films with subtitles.
    Google 'dictation' exercises and try some of them.
    Try extra listening exercises e.g. https://savoirs.rfi.fr/en/apprendre-enseigner this website is good (but depends on your level, idk if its too advanced for Year 9)
    Learn your key verbs/vocab so you can pick bits out. Just get the gist, that's all you'll need for questions/summaries!

    Hope this helps...good luck. Don't worry if you don't feel 100% now, the skills are accrued gradually, so if you practice a bit now by Y11 you'll be great
