I’ll keep an eye on this thread with you. I do A Level and I’m between A/A*. I did AQA for GCSE (I got a consistent 8 but didn’t revise for mocks because I’m lazy. Didn't get to take the actual GCSE though but I’d have probably got a 9)
so basically i need to find a french version of you lmao

Hehe, I’m half french but I dropped it a long time ago. Depending on what it is, I could still help, ask my friends who take A Level or ask my dad.

I personally hated it but I should have done A Level :/
I’d say you’re not missing out on lots by not having done it.

i find creating sentences quite hard - especially as there are so many different rules!

i know present:
je joue - i play

past:
j'ai joué - i played

je vais jouer - i am going to play



that's pretty much all i know ://

i need to know the future and conditional future and i just don't understand it!!

thank you for your help :smile:

I currently can’t dig out my old books but tense-wise, here’s a cheat sheet. I’m pretty sure word order is the same as English (German just decided to be rude, and switch it up) but @TriplexA, correct me if I’m wrong.

Sorry for answering a question not directed at me but VOCAB VOCAB VOCAB, learn your speaking question answers. They’ll be enough to get you through writing and both passive skill exam papers. You can adjust the technique for grammar and sentence starters/more advanced phrases as well, if that’s your point of strife.

Mainly vocab revision for listening and reading. Always answer multiple choice Qs.

In your speaking and writing sections include complex structures which you can mould to the question i.e. connectives such as en revanche - on the other hand, a sentence with the conditional tense such as when I am older I would like to.... or If I had more time I would, also the present participle - by/in doing something - en stem of present tense verb + ant . AQA also like the word malheuresement - unfortunately.


Hope this helps and best of luck!
Hope the mocks went/ are going well.
