Just learn all the vocab and some grade 9 structures for writing and speaking and you should be fine

Reading
- read the news in French and English
- Highlight words that you don't know in texts, look them up and learn them
- Learn vocab in general. Memrise and quizlet are great
- Have French subtitles on when you watch films etc. You know whats happening so it's easier to work out what the words say!

Listening
- Podcasts (The news in slow French etc)
- music (Joe Dassin, Joyce Jonathan, Zaz, Benabar...)
- Films (with englisha dn French subtitles if you can)
- TV (Extra French on youtube
- Vocab

Writing
- Keep a diary in French, write 5 sentances a day and look up words you don't know.
- Vocab!
- Use HelloTalk to talk to native speakers who will correct your grammar.
- Use a revision guide to to practice translations AND MARK THEM
- More vocab
- Practice grammar... I'd suggest getting a grammar book for this but website such as lawlessFrench.com are also good.
- Look up and learn fancy sentances that you can adapt... my favourite was "bien qu'il soit" meaning 'Although he/it might be...

Speaking
- Talk to yourself in French are you go around the house... I'll often do this and then forget to speak English when my family talk to me, but it really does help to get you used to speaking! It doesn't need to be perfect.
- From now on, try only to speak to your teacher in French.


Bonne chance!

Oh dear...
I have a listening exam in a few days...
Oh dear...
😣
For speaking, get a revision bud. and practise with them. It helps. Try past papers and learn lots of vocab./ tenses on memrise, duolingo or quizlet. That also helps.
Remember what the examiner is looking for, use 3 tenses (or at least attempt), give opinions and justify why you have those opinions. Try your best and if you can, give somebody elses opinion too.
That way, you'll get grades 4/5 with no problem.
Bonne chance! ☺
