Hi, I currently study A level Spanish (predicted an A*) and I got an A* in GCSE Spanish. Honestly don't worry too much about learning vast quantities of words at this stage in the GCSE course. What I would advise, which certainly helped me during Year 10 and 11 was learning topic related vocabulary that is in your GCSE books or from notes made in class. But have fun with it! Watch spanish movies with english subtitles to get used to the language and perhaps pick up some topic specific vocab from there. So overall, no more than 10 words a week. Hope this helps!

Try the app/website Duolingo. The majority of the topics are related to the GCSE course. If you have any questions just pm me!

This is sound advice, though I wouldn't be too worried if I couldn't understand any Spanish in films at first.

Building vocab can really speed up your Spanish, but you shouldn't neglect the basics of grammar either. Spanish verbs are hard, but you do need to get your basic verb conjugations. I printed out a table for conjugations for regular -ar, -er and -ir verbs and stuck it on my wall. I later moved on to irregular verbs and past, future, conditional, perfect tenses. This helped me to familiarise myself with the rules and increased the number of phrases I could say. Not at all easy, but once you start to get this you can go far.

You're all brave to be taking Spanish; best of luck!
