How do you write really good answers and how do you get it in your head?
(Exam in 1 1/2 month -freaking out)
Also, do you guys have any good examples that I can have inspiration from-you don't have to

Keep it simple, translate an everyday conversation you would have in English to French (ex. ordering coffee; passport check at the airport; buying something at the shop; getting in the bus..), does this help?

yeah, i've started to say opinions in french and it is actually helping me.

Thanks for the advice, it's just the tenses I struggle with the most.

i dont wanna curse it but im predicted 8/9s in both (our school isnt allowed to predict straight 9s), i got 57 and 58 in my mock orals if that helps u gauge xx for tenses (french right?) for passe composee (ik there are accents but i cba to type them lol) learn the patterns so er verbs go e acute accent, ir goes to i and re goes to u. then look at patterns like boire to bu lire to lu venir to venu devenir to devenu sorts of things, learn mrs vandertramp/travendamp. Honestly practise is the biggest thing if ur teachers give you gap fills that rlly helps where they miss out the verb, give u the infinitive and u have to conjugate them and put them in the correct tense sort of thing. Write all ur tenses out and extensively practise each so passe composee imparfait present future simple and proche. Try a verb a day? we do that in lessons and it helps. Also practise using all ur tenses when trying to answer questions. Start in the tense the question is asked in to show you understand then expand in other tenses. Using something like je joue au tennis depuis dix ans (i have played tennis for 10 yrs) formed with present + depuis + time is funky, look for things like that xx soz this is abit rambly
