Revision Tipps: Reading and Listening
The best way to revise for the GCSE German listening and reading exam is to practice the papers from previous years.
Before you listen to the audio or start the reading comprehension, read all the questions, and think about the topic. Try to anticipate the words that are likely to come up. If you’re prepared for hearing/reading certain words and phrases, you’ll be more likely to pick up on them.
Make sure that you’re able to identify a sentence in the past, present, and future. You should also make sure that you’re familiar with the w-questions such as wer, wie, was, wo wann, mit wem, …etc.
To succeed the reading and listening exam you need to know a certain set of vocabulary covering specific topics. Make sure you learn the words after each chapter in your book!
Top Tip: Relax! There will always be words you don’t know.
The key is not to get distracted. Stay focused on the details you need to answer questions.
