Hi there.

Languages can be challenging for many people so your not alone. I recommend using quizlet as it's a great site. Another tip I can give is trying to link word stems to each other and linking words in French to English somehow to help you remember them.

For example: "Main" is the word for hand in French so you could link this to the word Manicure
Likewise "Pied" which means foot to Pedicure.


Any other silly ways to remember vocab can also work - just don't write them down on the paper perhaps!

Best wishes.

I recommend doing it little but often. Perhaps set aside 5 minutes on a morning, afternoon and evening and solely practice french vocab. Perhaps ask a friend to help out with testing you on break/lunch times. At the end of the day see how many words you can remember and keep the words you don't know for tomorrow and repeat.

See how it goes for you - it may or may not work. Language revision can be boring sometimes especially if you feel you're making no progress.

Give it a try and do let me know how it goes.
Best wishes.

Use AnkiWeb! It's a flashcard website (and app but don't get the app if you have iOS- it's expensive) with an algorithm to help you memorise things super fast. I'm currently doing GCSE French too and use it for French vocab. I've gone from scraping a grade 4 to a solid 6 after about 4 months of using it and my level of vocab has improved so much!
