A* in SpanishWatch
Hello, I’m trying to get a 9 in Spanish next year and I’m currently in year 10. I have no idea how to go about revising it. If you got an A* in Spanish can you please let me know how to revised what you did
For me I used duolingo in my spare time, which I feel helped with the listening side of the exams, and just making myself more familiar with the language in general
I'm not sure if they exams have changed now as I did my GCSE in 2016, and there was only reading and listening exams to do
I think there were some practice listening exams online that we did in class, so you could try to do those
Otherwise just try and spend some time reading the language and looking up words you don't understand etc
I hope this helps!

Ask your teacher for feedback all the time!!! I was also working at a 5 but stepped it up as I spent the majority of the week before going over vocab etc. Work on listening to Spanish related things if you're too bored eg elite on Netflix.
you got this
I got an A (7) at GCSE so not quite a 9 but here’s what I did -
DuoLingo for the basics. The more your practice the basics, the easier they come to you.
Seneca and Memrise. This will teach you new phrases and words and the questions repeat so they get stuck in your head!
Learn your verbs, tenses and genders! this is so so important, if you can conjugate verbs correctly, this will boost your grade!
Learn a few grade 9 phrases off by heart. Mainly opinion phrases. Using these correctly will boost your grade more than if you just use opinions like “me gusta”.
Watch your fav tv shows in Spanish and listen to Spanish music! This will help your accent for your speaking exam and help you learn new words!
Get a Spanish dictionary and thesaurus as when you find yourself using the same word like “bueno” you can search and find alternatives to expand your vocab!
Hope this helps! Best of luck
