Hi, I plan on taking Spanish A-levels (starting 6th form next year so I have to choose now) and I was wondering if anyone could offer any tips on how to improve my Spanish quickly.
Thanks for the help!

Hi, I'm a native Spanish citizen.

I'd recommend you the following:

* Start watching simple videos in YouTube, eg. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t7-nb1wlnyA
* Use applications such as "Duolingo" which will help you understand the basics of several languages, name objects, construct sentences, practice pronunciation and speaking.
* Read plain articles from any topic you like, from: https://www.bbc.com/mundo / https://elpais.com/elpais/portada_america.html
* Try to write short sentences about anything that comes up to your mind. First in English, then search the words in Spanish and write them below.
* Watch videos about Spanish people talking about something (activate subtitles if you don't understand something).
* Depending on the exam you will take (Cambridge, Edexcel, AQA, OCR, among others) buy the coursebook, practice book/workbook and another book for Spanish begineers.

Moreover, you'll have to study and practice accentuation, verb conjugation, syntactic analysis, etc. However, you should prepare and try to understand this themes after you know at least how to write simple words or phrases.

Then, try to do IGCSE/GCSE past papers (if you can) from CAIE, Edexcel, AQA, etc. because they are easier than AS/A-levels.

When you have at least a medium level of Spanish do A-levels from any source.

I hope this information is useful.
Regards.
