    I was wondering if any other people were doing their oral exams pretty soon and thought this could be a good place to discuss ..

    I'm reasonably confident with the book topics but struggling a bit with the play (der Besuch der alten Dame) and the region, which is rather dull.

    What is everybody else doing?

    I had my mock german orals yesterday, and i've got my french mock oral next thursday

    As for revising... i think every exam board does different things and we did a book and a film, and then we have an argument type role play card, but yeah oral revision is hard!

    That sounds fairly similar to mine. Your not on AQA by any chance? I feel no where near ready for a mock yet, let alone the actual thing!

    Ooh I'm jealous. I'd love to have done a film, especially the edukators. Daniel Bruhl :love: I guess you have a lot of technical vocab and background?

    Is your real thing quite early? Ours is 26th. So 6 lessons or something. Scary!!

    Tbh, the vocab and that isn't as hard as i thought it would be because it's basically 'what happened in the film' type questions rather than the technical side

    And the 26th of april or may?

    My real orals are on the 9th may so i'm glad i've got plenty of time to perfect my speaking since the mocks were a bit shocking/really high grade boundaries haha

    Hi, if other people have speaking exams soon and want to practice speaking with other people on skype (rather than sitting slowly going mad talking to yourself or the mirror) then I've set up a thread. http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/show....php?t=1586873
    If lots of people contribute then it could be really useful!

    I don't do German unfortunately but I know lots of other people do We just need people to sign up!

    If you are on the AQA exam board, for German A2, then you will probably have a 'role play' card discussing issues such as immigration, science and technology, rich and poor, and the environment.

    Good luck all

    Hiya, I swear I made this thread and then just deserted it! How are you finding the play? I'm enjoying it and am finding it easier than the region which is surprising me as I HATE literature! I guess it's because the themes are reasonably obvious. The facts and figures for the other topic are so hard to remember

    I'm sure you'll be fine When is your actual exam?
