Hey, I’m in year 10 too with the OCR spec for German. First of all I would say buy a revision guide, that by far is a lot more helpful than the majority of websites. With any language the best way to learn is with videos, films and songs from my experience. I use ‘Sam Learning’ for revision which tends to work pretty well but overall, I’ve found YouTube more helpful.

Don’t stress anyhow, the German grammar isn’t the hardest (despite it having 16 different articles xD).

The thing with languages is that you’ll only do well if you want to or are motivated which you appear to be. Don’t stress, 9s aren’t everything!

If you ever need any help with German I’d be happy to. Best of luck!

Quizlet is great for dealing with vocab. For grammar, as tedious as it sounds, doing exercises can really help and writing a few pieces in German can tell you what vocab you’re missing; if your teacher doesn’t mind, they can give you advice on what to improve on. ‘Easy German’ and ‘Learn German with Herr Antrim’ are good YT channels, especially for listening comprehension. For speaking, just keep calm. They’re not expecting you to be perfect, just accurate and somewhat interesting.

Got an A* with the IGCSE Edexcel course. Hope that gives me some credibility.

Hi, I am studying german a level and at GCSE I got a grade 9. The sites I used were the German Stack Exchange (which is a lifesaver if you have questions about context, word order etc), Goethe Institut for listening and reading material, and the incredible Logo.de website (essentially NewsRound for german kids, the perfect ability level for listening GCSE). Also, the app Lingvist is brilliant, a better version of Quizlet with cases and gender tips.
Best of luck!
