Im hoping stuff about jobs come up in the directed writing.

Not prepared for anything else, have only sat 1 dw paper in my life.

I've never even seen a real SQA listening paper either!

So, in short, I am going to fail.

If by help you mean sitting the exam for me then yeah!
Otherwise can you tell me if this is right:
La ville est toujours animee et on peut rencontrer des gens san difficulte.
and does it mean:
The town is always lively and it is difficult to go out without meeting someone.
(i dont think it does but thats what ive got written down)
thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

For "it is difficult to go out without meeting someone" I would say something like "C'est difficile de sortir sans rencontrer quelqu'un"

I really don't know if that's absolutely right so don't just take my word for it!

The first part looks fine by the way!

"La ville est toujours animee et on peut rencontrer des gens sans difficulte."
Meaning - The town is always lively, and you can meet people without difficulty. Or anything similar. wink.gif

Sharon - Give us a topic, I'll post up some vocab for you! smile.gif

Exchange trips:

le bateau - boat
la traversée - crossing
avoir le pied marin - to "be a good sailor"
le long-courrier - long haul
faire escale - to make a stop-over
les voyages ouvrent l'esprit - travel broadens the mind
reposant - relaxing
le routard - backpacker
faire du tourisme - to go sightseeing
l'hébergement - accommodation
la vie nocturne - nightlife

I would say that I travelled to France by boat, it's different and there's so much more vocab to use! smile.gif

Future:

l'avenir - future
à l'avenir - in the future
d'abord - first of all
après ca - after that
je voudrais - I would like (add verb infinitive, eg-)
je voudrais travailler - I would like to work
je ne sais pas exactement - I don't know exactly
l'année prochaine - next year

Hope that helps! biggrin.gif

Lol - the one thing I don't want to come up!

As for listening essays im hoping for something on family or school

Overall I'm feeling pretty confident as french is my strong subject and I got an A in the prelim

Good luck everyone!

Bonne chance tout le monde! Et pas de panique!
If there's any more vocab needed, give us a shout.
A wee correction to make from Derek's post:
l'année prochaine (année is fem)
or you can use:
l'an prochain (an is masc)
