I need a good way to remember my spanish oral, i've been trying to learn it for over a week and i've only learnt half of it!! I cant just read it because i just get distracted...
Does anyone have any good ways of remembering their orals??
I cant just make it up on the spot cos i'll just panic and forget everything

Thanks in advance ...

I did French, but it's the same technique. This is how I learnt my French one:

1. Take the paragraph/answer/whatever (preferably written in pencil or a word processor) and read it aloud to yourself.
2. Delete/rub out the first sentence.
3. Try and remember the first sentence and then read the rest aloud.
4. Check to see if you got it right.
5. Get rid of the next sentence and repeat steps 3 and 4 until you can do the whole of it by heart.
6. Practice every day!

It won't work for everyone, and takes ages; but it worked for me (to the extent where I can still recall a few of my oral answers just over a year later!).

Hope this helps somewhat.

I don't know why, but for my Spanish oral walking around my room and saying the paragraph out loud repeatedly, was quite effective in remembering my answers!

You're welcome.
When I say it took ages, I meant a couple of hours (to learn roughly 20 small paragraphs), not a couple of days! Just wanted to clear that up in case I've caused any confusion. :o:

Write it out three times, say it out loud three times, if you don't know it by then just cross your fingers and hope for the best.

Gather lots of spanish guys and practice on them individually, you should eventually see them finishing quicker as you practice more often

try and learn it like a story. an oral should fit together. learn it in keywords. for example if you think school you say "mi colegio es en ....." or "me gusta mi colegio porque los profesores son muy bien." This is actually part of how your mind works, I say the three little pig and then you know the story, because you remember it as a story it makes it fun and easier to remember.

Your sentences are grammatically incorrect, it would be "mi colegio está en" and "me gusta mi colegio porque los profesores son muy buenos".

Try shouting it out to yourself, sentance by sentance. The first few times have it in front of you, but then start looking away, only looking at it if you have forgotten it. I am doing my Spanish speaking and my teacher got me to do it for a part i kept pronouncing wrong. I wasn't learning that part at the time, but when i got onto it, i knew it almost straight away.

Tape it to the outside of the shower and read it while taking your shower ( that's what I did for all my orals)
