Hello, how do you revise for paper 1?
I find paper 1 pretty hard to revise for and always procrastinate. But i put all the vocab into quizlet...and then use their learn/game functions to learn the vocab. I don't use Memrise but I've heard it can be quite good, so you can give that a try. I find translations the hardest so I just practice them...a lot. And I practice doing the summaries under timed conditions, whilst trying to keep it under 90 words. If you have Kerboodle at your sixth form (i have no idea if it's just my sixth form, or if everyone has it) then they do lists of vocab that are different to the book vocab and the exercises are harder so when you do the real thing it seems easier. I also do the exercises in the text book and do as many past papers as I can...not that there are many, but you begin to notice patterns ie they always seem to put in the phrase "more and more" in the English --> Spanish translation and will only accept "cada vez mas" and won't accept "mas y mas" so that has really helped me too.

I think you will probably be marked down but considering you a. only said sorry (not a full sentence) and b. corrected yourself (you identified the mistake) you'll may be lose a mark or two for fluency

okay, so if you log into kerboodle, click on the course (Spanish from 2016), and go into resources, down the side of the screen on the left is a list of all the resources- my teacher always gives us the worksheets to work through and the translations etc tend to be a bit harder than the actual test (to me anyway!). Even so, they are still really useful in revision as we obviously don't have many past papers yet! Hope that helps

At the end of the day, it's done now and I'm sure you will make up for it on the other papers...I'm sure it wasn't even as bad as you remembered! Good luck

Hi Guys, Just wondering the best way to revise for Paper 2?
This is what I normally do:
I make revision cards on themes, characters, plot, writer/director's technique; I make posters as well; I also find any past paper questions for my book (La Casa de Bernarda Alba) and film (El Laberinto del Fauno) and practice making essay plans from those- tests your knowledge and ability to make essay plans (normally give myself 5 to 10 mins to do one to practice under time pressure). The revision guides by Hodder education are pretty good and there's loads of online resources made by teachers. Hope that gives you an idea?

I can't think of many off the top of my head, but one might be" al + infinitive" so "Upon doing/eating/reading etc" they also seem to like subjunctives in the English to Spanish translation.
