I'm now going into year 11 and i've started self-learning AQA A-level French. I've bought the vocabulary book Mot à Mot by Hodder education which many people seem to use for vocab.
My question is whether or not it is recommended to learn all the vocab from the book.
I've found that there are many strange phrases that I can't see being used, like "stumbling blocks" and "an insurmountable obstacle".
So is the vocab in there like a minimum requirement for A-level, or high level?
Thanks!

I used that book a bit for A level, but for GCSE vocab I'd recommend that you learn all the AQA GCSE French vocab on memrise before you add any other words or phrases! Ideally you'd have at least 1300 words before you do the exam, so the memrise set should be fine! The vocab in mot à not is good, but not really GCSE level... Even for A level, I focused on learning the vocab in the textbook (both from the texts and from the vocab lists) rather than learning from mot à mot. There's more than enough there to be going on with.

Pardon, jai mal lu ton message ! Pour le bac, faut apprendre beaucoup de vocabulaire mais Mot à Mot prèsente encore trop de Mots, je trouve ! Moi, jai créé des cartes de vocabulaire (j'utilise Quizlet, donc je pourrais t'envoyer mes dossiers) Avec Les mots qu'on utilise en cours (etc), et dont jai spécifiquement besoin quand j'écris sea dissertations ! Jai eu in A*, donc jai sûrement appris assez de vocabulaire

You say this now but just wait 6 months or so and you'll be using the above and more like crazy. Using stuff like that and sophisticated vocabulary alongside having sound grammar will help you contend for full marks in every single piece of writing or speaking that you'll do. :hat2:
