I have my mock for Spanish in December but my school is making us start preparing our answers now, but I'm not sure how to choose my picture. Any help would be much appreciated!

Is this GCSE? A-level? IB (and if so, ab initio, SL, or HL)?

It helps people to advise if you provide as much information and context as possible

iGCSE (not much different to normal GCSE, I think we just learn different content)

Good to know Hopefully someone will be able to advise you soon! While I did do GCSE Spanish, it was about 12 years ago and I've promptly forgotten all of it so I can't really offer too much advice (and I don't recall us choosing a picture for the oral; I think we just had our topics assigned by our teacher)

I would guess what you talk about will be related to the picture, so presumably think about what vocab you've covered and you're confident in and pick the one you think will let you use as much of that as you can. You'll probably be able to demonstrate understanding of the different grammatical aspects (tenses etc) from any prompt.

No, I do Edexcel, but I doubt that the course is too different as they will be assessing similar things just with different vocabulary.

There will likely be a selection of themes - with AQA there was a theme on identity, one on the environment and the third was on education.

I'd say think about the topic which you know most vocabulary for and perhaps choose this. Also a topic which you feel you can talk a lot about and expand on.

Hope this helps! If you have any more questions I'd be happy to answer them

Thanks! The topics for iGCSE Edexcel are home and abroad, the world around us, social activities/fitness/health and I can't remember the other 2 right now

No worries

Do you have an idea about which topic you'd pick?

Yep! I've actually picked my picture now (I had to pick before last Friday as we did a little bit of work then). I have chosen a picture with some people playing volleyball.
