I have to learn a 2 page piece of spanish for my writing GCSE that I am taking in about 4 weeks, how can I remember it all without any mistakes?

  • 1 vote

I have written the piece by myself and I have checked that it is all correct but I have no idea how I am going to remeber it all. I have about 4 weeks to remember it, maybe a little bit shorter. I have to remember it without anymistakes and it is about 2 pages long. The topic I am writing about is on holidays(travel and tourism) and I'm quiet confident that I will do well as in my draft I got a B but my target is an A/A* and I want to achieve it as close as I can. Any tips on how I can acheive my goal and remember all of this work?

Haha, you're just like myself.

What helped me the most is understanding what you write. So ask you're self. Do I understand what this means? So then it's not like you're just writing it from memory. If you're an A* student then it means you should be able to understand most of what you are saying.

I tried writing out each paragraph dozens of times, when I advance to the next paragraph I'd try it all from the top. You shouldn't worry too much, you do have a dictionary during the exam right?

Try sectioning mentally what you're going to write out, individual topics. Like having different headings.

Good luck, I don't think you'll do too bad. Most people tend to do better in writing, it's not that tough. Just put in a reasonable amount of effort :)

lear one paragraph at a time until you learn it from memory and then do the same with the next paragraph and so on until you know it off by heart and can write the whole thing out from memory, this worked for me, i got full marks.

I record myself on a webcam but say only a few words at a time then pause for a few seconds so I can say it back to myself. Then gradually build up to a few sentences and see if I can repeat a few sentences back. hope this makes sense.

I remember having to do this for my GCSEs, and in the end I worked out a way that helped best.

I attempted writing it out a couple of times just copying it off of the sheet - but obviously it's dead boring and so time consuming, so after a couple of drafts, I gave myself a 50-word limit of notes/phrases/particular words I always forgot or got wrong, which I could highlight and then make a note of.

It often worked out that there was actually less than 50 words that I got stuck on - and then those highlighted ones would then stick in my mind better because they had been drilled in further, so they then acted as a trigger to jog my memory of all the rest of the sentences in between.

I hope this helps - if it even made much sense. Good luck!

what i do is that i re-write it over again and record my self saying it over and over until i know all the words or i just learn the harder ones and then try to remember where to put the simpler words
