    I have my igcse german oral in around 3 weeks and I'm really worried. I'm not sure how to prepare for it; I have a huge booklet of questions that I might be asked on but I'm not sure how I'm supposed to use it efficiently. :confused:

    Any advice will be appreciated.

    The main thing is just to relax and be yourself. The people who get the best marks are the ones that sound the most natural and fluid when they speak.

    Also, no matter how many questions you may memorise the answer to, there is no better practice than just speaking with someone else in German. This is easier said than done but if you have a good friend who also does German, you could help each other in that sense. If not, maybe arrange to meet your teacher one lunchtime to have a practice (I don't know if this is allowed).

    Also focus on making sure you get the basic grammar right i.e. verb endings, tenses etc as a silly mistake such as the wrong tense could impede the meaning of what you are saying, thereby possibly losing you marks. As I don't know what specification you are doing so I can only offer you this general advice but as an A2 German student, feel free to PM me if you have any questions
