I have been self-studying French foreign language for 10 months now (but since there was no teacher I didn't really do much), are there any resources or ways to help me study for my IGCSE exam so I can at least get an A?
P.S. I studied French with a teacher from year 7 to year 9. But I feel like I forgot a lot of stuff in the past 10 months as I didn't properly study.

Remember key words. That’s the most important thing! Thats what will give you the most marks, to use they keywords. And when you have to write like paragraphs in french remember like “because” “that’s why” “I love this” “Therefore” “Furthermore”. Like key sentences to make up a paragraph. Write a sentence in english, select the main keywords, learn them in french and you will be able to use the same sentence structure on your sentence. Also, try to see if the french word sounds like something in english, repeat it in your head till it sounds similar to another word and you will be able to kinda assume the word and trasnlate it to english. As well read the sentence before and after the word you dont know so you can assume what they are saying and translate it (this is for the translate bit). Good luck!
