We went through almost all of a past paper in the hour. It was really useful as I was shown lots of exam techniques and different vocubulary to look for in each quetion. The session as got me feeling more confident about the paper and helped by covering a few key verbs to look out for.

Questions Imogen has answered

How can I improve my written style to sound more sophisticated/to a higher level?

There are several steps which you can take to really improve your written and even spoken French. Here are my top three! Firstly, remember to include a range of tenses in your work- try and use three tenses to show your understanding of the language- if you just use the present tense throughout you will get a significantly lower mark! In addition, try and use different forms of the verbs that you’re using. For example- don’t just use ‘je’! Try and include other forms such as ‘we’ and ‘they’ as this demonstrates a higher understanding of grammar.

Secondly, try and include interesting opinion phrases such as ‘en ce qui me concerne’ (as far as I’m concerned) and ‘il me semble que’ (it seems to me that)- these can really make you sound more sophisticated. Furthermore, adding linking words into your work such as ‘cependant’ (however) can also improve the quality of your work as it allows sentences to flow more clearly and creates more complex sentences.

Lastly, remember to proofread your work! This is a simple piece of advice but it really does make a difference!

Is there more than one way to say ‘you’? When do I use each one?

Yes, there are two ways of saying ‘you’- tu and vous. Tu is used in much more familiar and informal situations whereas vous is more polite and formal. For example, if you were talking to a friend you would use tu but if you were talking to the head of your school you would use vous.

What is an infinitive?

This is a word that you will hear at lot in Spanish (and in languages in general!). The infinitive is basically the basic form of the verb- ie the verb before it is conjugated. In Spanish there are 3 main types of infinitives which end in either AR, ER or IR. In English the infinitive is translated as ‘to + verb’ so ‘to have’ (tener), ‘to go’ (ir), ‘to buy’ (comprar).  These verbs can be used in the infinitive but it doesn’t indicate a person or a tense so in order to say ‘I have’ or ‘we buy’ you must conjugate the verb by finding the stem and then adding the right ending.
