French listening revisionWatch this thread
I know exactly what to revise for all subjects apart from French! I was even considering going in without any revision to be honest, but I guess that would be a bad idea.. So what can I revise at home for this exam and French in general?
For the other French papers it would help to learn grammar, but don't think that would help too much in this paricular exam. Also for the rest of French how would you advise I revise?
Also, revise ways of expressing opinions as they nearly always have a table where you have to decide whether a person likes/dislikes something
Don't really have time for watching french films or listening to radio, so any other advice?
I know I need to learn vocab, but is there no definitive list I can use that will help me? The one on the OCR website has no english translation for words and does seem excessive!
learn things like adjectives - proud, drunk, excited etc. -the less common ones
learn modes of transport etc.
learn vocab to do with hobbies, activites etc
but if you dont know the vocab in the exam, guess! if you know most of the other words, you should be able to!
also, if you dont have time to just watch a french film, download some french podcasts and listen to them on the way to school!
or, if you normally revise with music, if youre doing somehting like maths, try listening to french radio...although this might be a little confusing!
but definitely podcasts on the way to school!
Do past reading papers, then go through when completed and note down around 20-30 words you didn't know. Find them in the dictionary because it's a longer process of finding them in comparison to google translate etc. which means your more likely to remember them. Learn those words, maybe stick them on your wall, and write them in different sentences, speak them in your head at school?? Then just keep doing reading tests and you'll find you recognise loads of vocab you didn't before and you'll find you pick up loads of new marks.
