My teachers give me loads of sheets of vocab to learn off by heart for the listening and reading comprehensions. i was just wondering is it all necessary? i don't want to clog my brain with all unnecessary material.
It kind of depends on how good you are at French. If you're fairly good at it I wouldn't bother but if you find French hard it might help you to learn it
Look at past exam papers. If you can answer most of the questions, then you're fine. For questions that you don't know, make sure to note down any vocabulary that you don't know. I think that's a better way to learn
look at the letters and notes and post cards in the exam papers. see what vocab can be used in most of the them and learn off that much
