Help with my Spanish GCSE

Hey,

So there are about two weeks until my Spanish reading and listening GCSE's and I mainly get D's in past papers. I have recently found this website and would like to know any tips that will get me the C minimum. I have A's in my coursework as that is just remembering a script. Do you think doing around an hour a day will get me the C minimum? Thanks!

I'd advise you to do some classes every day to get a feel for the language - the more you read and hear, the more you'll be able to get its rhythms right.

Try reading the comments to the answers as well, and ask questions if you have any doubts. We're a friendly community who's invested in helping others out, and as long as you're polite I'm sure someone will be glad to help you.

Thank you. Do you think that someone could learn a considerable amount of Spanish in a week or two. I am on my 5th and final year and feel like I am only intermediate.

If you haven't learned that much in all that time, I can't say Duolingo will make miracles and make you proficient right away, but I do think that the course might help in getting some things to click for you.

In a way, every language has an inner logic which you need to follow: in these two weeks, you just need to take what you've learned and make yourself think in Spanish before you write in Spanish, and that's where the grammar exercises and the comments will help you: in realizing what you were doing wrong and how to stop thinking in English when you wanna write or speak in Spanish.

Good luck! Te deseo mucha suerte con tu prueba!
