General tips for the reading exam.

  • Learn vocabulary regularly. Just 10 words a day will build up to a large stock of words by exam time.
  • Don't worry if you don't know every word in a sentence, look at the overall meaning.
  • Sometimes you can guess a word from its context. It must be a sensible guess however, don't guess wildly!
  • Check if your answers should be in French or English (an English question = an English answer, a french question = a French answer)
  • Watch out for faux amis (false friends) e.g. hôtel de ville = town hall (nothing to do with hotels!)
