I’m in year 12 but I’m quite worried about my German because I want to try get an A* .

Any tips to help are greatly appreciated!
Also how would you advise that I structure vocab learning? There’s so many different themes and parts, for example class vocab, listening vocab (unknown vocab from listening exercises) and theme vocab and I don’t know how and when to leanprn them.

Please help!

I do A2 German, so I'd recommend using Quizlets and Kerboodle.

Just annoy the heck outta your teachers by constantly asking for more revision resources - especially listening transcripts, because they give you an insight into the 'unknown' vocabulary.

Also, do wider reading in German (try Deutsche Welle: https://www.dw.com/en/top-stories/s-9097)

To do with your vocab structure, I'd suggest getting a large piece of paper and making a mind map of all related vocabulary for each sub-topic, and writing or highlighting words relating to a certain part in different colours. Remember to put the English translations of the words with them, it makes learning the words easier.

If you need any more help, just ask!

Thank you! Do you recommend that I learn a couple of German words everyday?

It would be useful to create lists of vocab by theme, perhaps 50 per theme to start off with and work your way through each list.

Yea, I'd say learn a few new words everyday, so you have a wider range of vocab to use in your writing and speaking activities.
