Since starting alevel french I have found listening exercises very hard. I often find myself hearing a word and not even having an idea of what it could be I’m not sure if my textbook as hard listenings (élan 1) or if that’s just what a level listenings are like but does anyone have any tips??

Watch Netflix in French and if you don't understand put the English subtitles on.

Learn it the proper way, try joining a active support group on Facebook
Find a French teacher, or search online for book and app recommendations

Just buy the cahier du jour cahier du soir which is what the French kids use as revision guides. The class of 6 eme is for 11 year olds in France, 3eme for 14 year olds. (costs about£5 on a famous internet site. Grammar, texts, exercises etc) You won't be doing any more than that in A level, and then just watch as much French T.V as possible. For essay practice use étudier.com. There are literally thousands of sample essays on it used by french kids to pass their exams from GCSE level through university and beyond. You can have access to free material,pay for full access or submit an essay to gain access to all materials. Definitely worth looking at.

Je te conseille de trouver un extrait audio qui a une transcription. Lis-la tout en écoutant l'extrait pour associer les mots aux sons. Il y a une chaîne YouTube qui s'appelle « Easy French » et avec toutes ses vidéos, il y a des sous-titres. Bonne chance!
