I’ll be the first to admit that I sympathise with people when they say that they find French study difficult or boring. I can still remember life almost ten years ago when I was preparing for my French Junior Certificate exam. Unfortunately, most memories consist of me attempting to learn EVERYTHING in my French book with a relative lack of success. If you can relate to this- please stop immediately. Over a third of the book won’t appear on your exam so stop wasting your time. Click here for help on what to prepare for the aural exam, or click here to prepare for the written ones.
