The top achieving students in MFL will do that little bit extra in addition to the normal lesson work and homework, that enables them to access the top grades.  Here are a number of ways to support your studies. 

The top students will make notes on every lesson, making cue cards as you go along will help you save time with your revision later in the year.

There are many apps for your phone to support language learning : Duolingo, Babbel, Memrise, Linguascope to name a few.  Just 10 minutes every day for the whole of Year 11 will add up. 

These QR codes link to the EDUQAS website pages for each GCSE language.  Here you can find past papers, examiners marksheets – which give you hints as to what students didn’t do so well in previous exams, sample assessments and more. 




Practice makes perfect, so any opportunity to use your language take it, with a friend, neighbour, relative, teacher…and look out for the extra revision classes to get you to those top grades.
