A Level Spanish dramaaa Watch
What year are you in, 12 or 13? IRP is fine as long as you pick a topic you actually care about and are willing to set aside some time every week for. Yes the picky markschemes got on my nerves a bit too but there’s essentially only a select few idiomatic phrases and structures that they always reuse to see who knows them and who doesn’t, eg cada vez más = more and more. All it is is experience, the vocab will come over time, as long as you master tenses and those certain phrases that always crop up you will find yourself doing better. Also remember that when you translate into English, you get credit for rendering it nicely, ie shuffling the word order around a bit and taking small liberties to make it sound like natural flowing English. If you look at what you’ve put and it doesn’t sound like normal English, chances are you’ll lose marks. Common sense goes a long way
Hey thanks for the reply, I am in year 13 btw. Those tips are really helpful, hopefully I pick it up eventually. I am not brilliant at English so I’m better at translating to Spanish to be honest 😂 I am doing El Chapo for my IRP, what are you doing / or did yours on?
No worries. I did mine on Peru’s president in the 1990s. I did my a levels this June, I did french as well as Spanish and got a* in both. What do you mean you’re not brilliant at English? Are you from another country?
