I would appreciate any tips or advice please...
I have a slightly dyslexic dd who wants me to help her with her French and Spanish revision. I do not have any knowledge of either....

I feel quite confident with helping her with oral as she has the questions and answers and therefore has to learn them

How do I help with reading, listening and writing. She has vocabulary lists for both.

Please can I have an idiots guide to helping her?

Go on to her exam board website eg AQA. There will be sample papers and practice questions she can have a go at.

Look at newspaper websites eg and get her to try to read some of the articles for gist

Just take her exercise/vocab book and quiz her on vocab in there, any vocab she gets wrong, make a new list and test her again repeatedly until she gets it right.

Good luck to her, I am a French Teacher on maternity leave so keep worrying about how the students are getting on!

She might like to explore the free listening resources in French and Spanish on A Green Mouse. I have a blog here and I am a partner on TES.
