Ok hello everyone thought I might as well post because everyone else is sharing their problems :P So yeah I am currently doing my GCSEs & I happen to be doing my french early. It's in roughly 4 weeks time now & I'm finding it bloody IMPOSSIBLE to revise for my speaking. I have fucking loads to do & now that it's getting near I'm sort of panicking about it. I have no motivation to learn anything, & when I try to it goes through one ear & out the other...any ideas for how I could get it to er, stick in my head? Hmm actually this was pretty pointless but oh well...

Hi Cara!

I know how you feel about oral exams. I recorded both my french and german ones to tape and whenever I could I listened to it. I recorded it to dictaphone many a time. Wrote it out a gazillion times. Spoke it with my teacher. All of those seemed to help.

*points* i DO like your icon :)
Hmm yeah, it's also difficult because I tend to get tongue tied as well haha. I've tried taping my french before, it didn't seem to work. Maybe I should write it out a gazillion times I haven't tried that out yet :P
Thanks for the ideas hehe

Hehe oops, still didn't you get an A? That's pretty good for not learning any of it.
I think I will, as from tomorrow. I'll force myself to, but it will be hard!

yep i did! i don't know how, my whole french exam was a disaster. i turned up late for the writing one, i'd overslept and my mum didn't realise i had an exam and didn't wake me up.
i bet you do great, you must be good at french if you're doing it a year early anyway

Haha well I guess I'm okay at it, people who are in the top group from year 7 take it early. GrrIhatebeingatalanguagecollege. But yes I hope I do great/okay :P

Yikes, that sounds really rough. I hated GCSE French, particularly the oral exam. Have you ever been made to do one of those learning stykes tests which determines the mode you most productively intake material (Auditory, Visual or Practical)? If not, check out http://www.ldpride.net/learningstyles.MI.htm - the results may help you come up with ways to help everything stick.

good luck!
