So Ive got my oral coming up soon but I don't have any clue how to go about it! I've tried writing down cards but i find that I always run out of time. Also, during tests and stuff my mind doesn't work right and all i can say are stuff like 'Das ist toll!'

Anyone got any tips for the upcoming speaking? Like how to revise, feel more confident or even just how to come up with flashy phrases without stumbling over myself?

BTW this is AS AQA German

Thank you!!

this is what i did for my oral (i got 100%)

Wrote it out once
got it corrected by my teacher to correct it

wrote it out again
gave to my teacher to see if i needed any improvements

wrote it out again, whilst i wrote it i read it aloud

from paragraph one i learned one sentence, then when i knew it, i highlighted it
keep highlighting each sentence
then read the whole paragraph

My teacher gave us a list for potential questions on each sub-topic, and I just practiced answers for those. I sort of created a loose structure of an answer that I could bend to each question. Listing advantages and disadvantages of topics is really useful, because that is often the easiest to fill out an answer
Also use the speaking card to use up some fancy phrases, because you have time to think about it. Have a check list in your of a wenn sentence, a relative clause, a conditional etc. Obviously you don't have to pack them into one point but if you can slot them in your card at the beginning to get them out of the way.
