Hey everyone,
I'm going to be in Year 10 next year and I will be taking Spanish as a new subject along with French (which I have been doing since Year 7) and Spanish and I want to get a head start in because I'm the only one in my year taking two languages at GCSE. Does anyone know anything I could do over the summer to help with Spanish so I don't walk in completely baffled?
Thanks.

Hi
I've been doing GCSE Spanish for a year now and something you need to understand is the verb table.
There are different types of them such as future, preterite and many more.

Memrise and Quizlet are great for vocab and you can usually find courses on there that are tailored for GCSE level vocab. I'd make sure you know how to conjugate verbs in the main tenses too (present, preterite, imperfect, conditional and future) along with the most common irregular verbs (ir, ser, dar etc.)

Hey!
I'm exactly like you! I was the only one to do the two languages in my school and I had quite a struggle with Spanish as I was only allowed to do it for an hour a week compared to three hours for French, but nevertheless I have been predicted an A*. I have literally just finished my GCSE's though. May I ask what exam board you are with? Then I'll be able to help you further

If you have any questions or need help with anything please feel free to ask

Another double language GCSE student :woo:

As said above, I would look at grammar and basic tenses (present, preterite and future r a great place to start) so that u become familiar

Also u usually begin GCSE with talking about urself so try to learn stuff like ur nationality, age, family Bc that should help u

There’s apps such as Duolingo that will be great for languages like Spanish and you can do a bit everyday for a headstart to GCSE Spanish. Through that you can gradually pick up new vocabulary but I wouldn’t panic too much, you’ll be up to scratch in no time.

memriseeeee. i love memrise it honestly saved my grades. language gym is also great and duolingo is great. mastering the basics is very important (such as conjugating verbs). it helped me at the beginning of my gcses and a week before my exams - i refreshed my memory by going through the basics again.
