if this is gcse speaking then yeah they are generally the same (as someone who took spanish and french at gcse).

The speaking questions in french will be slightly more complex/hard because you've been studying french consistently since year 7 according to the national curriculum

but you get to choose the topic you want in each part of the speaking (some rules like choosing from the different units) so use it strategically.

ohhh I see thanks!

here’s my tips.

so i had the photo card,
general conversation

for the general conversation - choose a topic where you’re quick on your feet because its really about keeping the momentum of the convo going.

for the photo card,

use your opinions phrases and select the second topic you feel you know the most topic specific vocab because that can really up your grade.


bc i did my speaking last year. there was no roleplay
