ANY IDEAS OF OTHER WAYS TO REVISE FRENCH READING?

There are lists of vocab, the school gave us one that's about 17 pages long I think learning that or at least some of it helps, also there are some old papers on the Internet you have to pay for ones that are under 5 years old but the old ones are just as good and the mark schemes are there too

i'm having the same problem, i don't know how to revise Reading or Listening. Our teacher hasn't even told us what exam board we are with.. But i've just been revising different vocab. Because we haven't got practice papers either..

i've been told the list of topics i have to revise, and i've made a big spider diagram of all the vocab that goes with that topic..

But, we have revision sessions after school and things, and they help too:) so i'd just ask your teacher for some help on how to revise all of the different vocab.. or for your teacher to hold revision sessions..

i know i've not been much help, but maybe its given you some ideas.

is this for gcse's???

Listening - what you can do is listen to jtquotidien.org.uk with some reports on environment for example. Also, you can listen to french news stations like "20 heures" which is really useful. At first it is very hard to understand but if you listen for 15 minutes a day for 2 weeks everyday, it gets alot easier to understand.

Reading - PAST PAPERS. ANY french magazine or articles online. Spend 10/15 minutes aday reading articles and taking vocab you don't know down on a separate piece of paper and look them up.

Hope this helps :)

I like writing the french words or phrases on post-its and putting them all around my room with the english translation on the other side so you can lift up and check :D You also get familiar with them so its easier to remember :D

TV 5 education is really good- they have this thing called 7 jours au planete where they publish three video clips each week complete with listening and reading activities anf mark schemes for different levels

I don't know whether your school has it but linguascope is okay, check, its probably worth it and it helps the most with understanding more vocab.

Read a French Dictionary- it helps cos you can learn different words with the same meaning cos I've foind in the exams they use one word in the text and then a different word in the question! :-)
