do atleast half an hour everyday till then on the prepared answer and then another half an hour everyday on grammar, tenses and topic specific vocab revision. If you do that I'm sure you'll get a great grade :)

This is really good!!
I haven't learnt half of the vocab you have used so i'm not sure what some of it says, but what I have read is very good. It is good that you have used a lot of opinion phrases. You have also used past tense like dernier which is good.
Try and change some of your vocab into more complex words like J'aime/J'adore--> J'aime vraiment or J'aime beaucoup, this can change your grade a lot.
Also you could add in an example of future tense, maybe in the paragraph about what you read/have read, you could say what you might read next week or something like that.

Hope this helps :)

Also, I'd just like to point out, you have the same music taste as mee :P:P:)

Also, was Life of Pi good? Sorry getting off the subject a bit here :P

When you are actually doing the speaking exam, make sure you;

  • Remember everything
  • Speak clearly
  • Speak enthusiastically, even if your not
  • Use as many examples of tenses as you can

Hope that helps!

I got a B in my first GCSE exam I was only a few marks off an A, I would have got the A if i was more enthusiastic

Good Luck! :)

Ohh, haha so we do have a pretty similar music taste :'D ah that makes sense haha, I want to read it now :")

BTW tell talk about studies :P I think I did really bad in year 10 like I got B's, A's and a A* but I really understand or whatever way it makes sense to you..but I am more concerned about studies now. I just really want to do really well, like get the best grades I can but then I know I can't so I don't know what to do. Any advice? **

Yeah i hate it when you have to revise for more than one thing at one time, you just have to plan what your going to do each day :)

Did you have any exams this Jan? Have you still got any left?

Im finished now, but i might be doing an extra french exam in feb/march.

Just prioritise each of your exams and make sure you plan how long you want to spend on each subject. You should be fine :)
