i think french is one of the easiest highers you can do! if ur good at memorising things you can easily bank 25% of ur grade before even sitting the final
then the close reading passage isnt ever that challenging, and again if ur good at learning things the essays shouldn't be too hard either
id say the listening is the hardest bit
as for revision, do past papers, practice papers (there's a grey book published by Gibson for reading/directed writing practice), learning phrases, especially for the directed writing as the topic is very predictable
you should be able to get some listening recordings from your teacher from past papers so that's an excellent way to practice, there's also a book that was recently published by leckie and leckie specifically for Higher French and it's got a CD with it so that's good practice too
also become familiar with your dictionary, since ur allowed it in the whole exam its an excellent way to boost ur marks! many have verb tables at the back and lots of phrases you can easily put into an essay, accurately and it saves you having to learn them
good luck & all the best with it

|Languages are so easy compared to other subjects|
I dont think languages are easier than all other sujects!!! I think they are just as challenging and i feel that you are making out people just take languages as an easy option and they certainly are not!!

Dunno if this was at partly directed at me, but i wouldn't say languages are an 'easy' higher, there isnt an easy higher!
if ur someone who can learn a page of text and thats how ur mind works then its relatively straightforward

my 2 teachers have been faffing about worrying us with the subjunctive and such but to get an A grade you don't require to know the subjunctive.
i think the listening is the biggest step up from standard grade; it's so fast with no breaks between questions. i think it's best not to worry about answering the listening questions exactly until it's all over. i think just jotting down words and phrases when listening and putting them together to answer the questions during the 2 min break or after the tape's switched off is best. gd luck and gd luck with maths tomorrow if ur doing it

All the way from 1st year i kicked ass in french, and got str8 1's for my SG's.
But the thought of doing it again in 5th year, hah u gotta be joking.
Just the thought of it makes me fall asleep!!
Lol dont let me put u off the subject, im sure if i did take it this year i would have loved it, especially since now u have this close reading thing to do.

No we dont!
Only a reading but it is just more complicated than SG with a 10 mrk translation at the end!

I seriously doubt they'd use the same passage twice, but then again it is the SQA...
