Greets,

I've got my orals for German (SL) on Thursday, and my assigned topic is to speak over "Recycling."
I've got all my volcab and the like down, (I think), but I'm allowed by the IB guidelines to bring
with me a short outline. Can anyone give me a hand as to what kind of things it would be useful to
say? Things I shouldn't forget, and the like?

Thanks much,
J.C., IB nerd from Florida

The way I did it was to prepare the speech in German, written out in full, beforehand, with
corrections from my teacher, then I would bring in the speech in English and translate while you
read. It's hard but I seemed to remember more than just doing it via notes....

If you don't like that idea, you're allowed 10 small points. I'd say 4 for, 4 against, 1 intro, 1
summary is a good idea, for an argument sort of speech. That's what IBO like.

According to my teacher the IBO doesn't allow you to bring in a prewritten speech in any language.
You can take an outline, and the selection from your dossier that prompted you to discuss the topic.
That's good, because I've accidentally made some notes on the excerpts on Recycling...

Anyway, thanks much.. I suppose just putting down those pros and cons should have been obvious
Blame it on the latest TOK paper I've written!

My teacher looked it up and allowed me to do that. But I was allowed NO German at all.
