Top 5 Tips

1. Take note of vocabulary and expressions as you meet them and practice re-using them in your written tasks.

2. Listen to as much Spanish as you can because the listening exam is worth nearly half the marks (43%).

3. Make sure you know the basic grammar, especially the three main verb tenses.

4. Extend your vocabulary as much as possible by learning words by topic.

5. Familiarise yourself with the format of the exam, so you know what to expect on the day of the exam.
