36 Ingredients for Speaking and Writing To Access Higher Grades GCSE German

Students often ask me, ‘Miss, how can I get a higher grade in my GCSE German speaking and writing?’ I tell them there are a number of factors to consider, but generally, I tend to guide them to the MFL Progress Ladder, which I wrote about last year. I suggest that in addition to answering the question (!) they should include as many elements as possible from Grade 1- all the way up to their target grade. I advise them to add 2-3 different examples of each element, as far as possible, in any and all of their GCSE German writing and speaking to have more chance of accessing the higher grades.
