Do loads of exam papers, especially the reading comprehensions as the last 2 can be very difficult but be optimistic and focus on what u can understand. This way you will know what to expect in the mocks. the key idea is to look up words you dont know and LEARN them off. My class was really behind in third year too and it is a very long course so try and work ahead of the class, ie learn key vocab to cover your ass on a few extra topics at the end of the book that your teacher might not get to covor in detail for a while. also dont stress i got a C in the mocks and an A in the real thing and i was very behind. alos try practice a full listening once a week or so if u can that is worth a lot of marks too. best of luck, im in lc now so if feels like ages ago and not worth stressing over but i can relate. sorry for the essay...

I would say just learn vocab (including their der die das) for the key topics liie school hobbies family holidays and also know how to do the past tense. Practicinf the listening would also really help

I'm self teaching myself German for the jc and I do French so I'm pretty behind as well but I would suggest asking the other class (if there's another German class)'s teacher for some extra help, and if you have any friends in different schools or a higher year for their hardbacks or they could help teach you some? I've been doing this the past year and it's been very helpful :smiley:

so I'm extremely late commenting here but if you're still stressed about that A I would suggest learning things off by heart and not bothering trying to understand the language. Literally just learn basic grammer like congugations and basic past tense, and then learn as many sentences as possible on topics that have come up in the letters in previous years. For the letter, learn a set opening and closing as they get you automatic marks, especially for higher level. Hope this is a bit helpful!

If your teacher is bad , your chances of getting an A in german are very slim. German is extremely hard to get an A in especially if you teacher is bad but i wish you luck.
