    As-tu écrit ton travail?

    I'm swinging between terrified and relatively calmly curious about my upcoming Danish exams, at regular intervals. The reading and essay exam (think the reading part is about 90 minutes, then there's a short break, then the essay is 3 hours) is on the 21st. Then I've got listening, which weirdly enough is an hour long and actually read out by an invigilator as opposed to played on a tape, on the 31st. Then I'll have a 30 minute oral exam sometime between the 13th and the 26th June, some of which is a brief intro to settle, then a 5 minute presentation on a topic and follow-up questions on said topic - there will be three possible topics I'm notified of at least 7 days before, and I won't find out which I'm allocated until the exam starts... so I'll have to be prepared to give a 5 min presentation on any of them! :eek3:

    Well, that gives me a sense of perspective about my A-level German exams!

    Well I can't help on vocabulary, but just remember:

    Dw i'n/ ti'n/Mae fe'n/Mae hi'n etc
    Dw i wedi etc
    Bydda i'n etc
    Hoffwn i etc

    How are you taught to construct the past tense? Do you 'siaradais i' or 'wnes i siarad'?

    Remember you prepositional declensions like:
    i MI, IDDO fe/hi
    Amdana i/amdanat ti/amdano fe etc

    Remember your 'sydd' clauses

    Dw i'n adnabod rhywun sy'n ennill y gêm

    Remember your other relative clauses with 'bod'

    And all the mutation rules!

    Okay, so prepositional declensions is like how the preposition changed as to which pronoun is next to it. It doesn't happen with every preposition (e.g wrth), but it does in some of the more common ones.

    So for example, the preposition 'i'. This means to, most of the time.

    However, to say 'to me', 'i i' doesn't work. Therefore it changes to 'i fi'. Then, 'i ti' is fine, but then when you get to 'fe/hi', i becomes 'Iddo/iddi'. So 'iddo fe, iddi hi'. Then 'i ni/chi' are both fine, but when you get to 'nhw', it becomes 'iddon nhw'.

    This happens with 'o' and with 'am' and with others, so learn these.

    ---

    'Sydd' is used as a relative pronoun. It is used to mean 'that/who are doing/have done'. So to say 'This is the boy who is winning', you'd say:

    "Dyma'r bachgen sy'n ennill" (sydd yn contracts to 'sy'n')

    ---

    When I say relative clauses, I mean sentences like 'I think that he is a boy'

    Dw i'n credu ei fod e'n bachgen.

    ---

    And mutations, so like remembering to soften the next word with feminine nouns and adjectives (so cath is feminine, so it becomes 'y gath'), with some of the numbers, and some of the possessive adjectives (so work is 'gwaith', and 'your work/job' is 'dy waith di'). And then the rules of aspirates and nasals.

    HOWEVER

    It is much better that you produce a piece of work with grammar which you are more confident about rather than make big mistakes on grammar you don't know, so use what I've written with a large pinch of salt. I'm just trying to jog your memory if you have learnt about these aspects. It's MUCH better to be accurate than to be inaccurate, so if you're not sure about what I've written, don't use it.

    In what way? I've never done lessons in it, so I'm not very reliable in it at all, I'm afraid. I checked all of that^ stuff before I sent it.

    (Edit: made a mistake regarding 'iddo fe/iddi hi' - check back to my edited paragraph)
