I have a severe processing problem so I don't really read books for my age so don't laugh at me but I am reading the 12th book of the Skulduggery Pleasant series. I have all of them except the 13th book and I don't think the 14th is out yet. I was kinda forced to walk the dog because I am apparently 'not getting enough exercise' nut oh well. I had a good old jam session in the woods, singing and dancing to songs through my earbuds as there was no one else there. I know I am weird, don't judge me.
Oooooo french. We do love a god old bit of french. I got a 7 at GCSE so if you ever want any advice, just ask
omg, I've read that book! It's soo good (I don't remember which one I read but I briefly remember the plot). Also dw about not reading books your age - I pretty much read any book as long as it's interesting. I'm actually surprised at myself because I'm also someone who doesn't usually exercise but this year I've been pretty consistent :K: Also your mini jam session sounds soothing as heck - it's good to take a break once in a while. I have a French speaking exam on Tuesday which we're doing virtually and it's the real thing so I'm meant to be preparing by learning vocab but little old me likes to self-sabotage by procrastinating. However, I would like to know how you got a 7 - any revision tips?

No problem at all lmao. If I am being completely honest with you, I hove now idea how I got a 7. I was never actually that good at listening (5) and reading (6) but my two best were speaking (7) and writing (8 - almost a nine, 2 marks off). I was a bit of a procrastinator as well when it came to learning vocabulary so I can totally relate. Because we had teacher assessed grades as well, I think google translate was a big help haha when it came to getting good grades on my hw.
I am not saying cheat (please don't). What I am saying is learn from my mistakes and actually put all the work in.
I think what got me really good grades in the last two was that you write your speaking questions before hand and your teacher marks them. Then the you come to the exam, you have already done the work and just need to memorise them and work on pronunciation. It is pretty much the same for the writing as well as the writing questions are basically just slightly changed versions of the listening questions so if you memorise those questions again for that exam and maybe do a tiny bit of spicing them up , you will do great!
