Hey y'all,

Here's a general thread for CfE Higher French 2018-19. It probably won't be very active until exam time but it could be helpful so I've created it early.

@Labrador99 Could you add this to the SQA exams thread please?

I'd recommend this: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Collins-Fre...dp_ob_title_bk

Make sure to use your dictionary a lot before the exam so that you're comfortable with it.

As an aside, I used to also have the Oxford dictionaries for French and Spanish but the amount of times that they've failed me was too much. I found them extremely unreliable compared to the Collins dictionaries.

Also, here's a thread I made on language exams if you need any help: https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/sho....php?t=2320896

Bonne chance !

Does anyone have phrases or that that helps with each topic of directed writing? or questions that are going to come up in the exams of each topic?
Also is there any websites that are really good for the reading in the higher french exam?

Do past papers and stuff but when you're taking a break watch French films and YouTubers with subtitles and put your phone into French because it really helps. It's more effective if you do it over an extended period of time but even a few days of completely immersing yourself in the French language (even if you need subtitles at the start because you're still learning vocab with subtitles) really helps.

I have literally done every past paper and specimen paper there is. I am going in on Monday (yep a day b4 the exam) to get last minute help. Do you have any advice on how to conquer the writing? Should I learn one and manipulate it to what comes up or? I am in a class of 4, 2 advance highers and 2 highers. The other girl sitting higher with me speaks 5 languages fluently, feel like an underdog
