What are your technique? I did my French and got an A*, but I'm struggling to remember some of the words from the German speaking and therefore it makes my fluency worse. I've learnt 3 out of 5 of my questions, and I know it, but it just comes to me really slowly. How can I improve this? I was fine when I did my French, but even though I'm doing the same technique, I'm finding it hard.

I got an A* in my German speaking simply from starting memorisation around a week before the real thing and getting my German friend and teacher to listen to me and correct me (I highlighted words I knew I had difficulty pronouncing).

Maybe you find it harder because you're used to French and German words usually have very long words that are hard to pronounce. Keep practising!

Yeah, I think you could be right. French words sound similar to English and don't have many pronunciation rules unlike German. Thanks for the advice, I just need to have faith in myself haha
