    Ah yes Extra, I have seen this in class, no Deustchland 83 is an German series that premiered in German on channel 4 with English subtitles, I can't recommend series enough, it's short with only one series and 8 episodes, but it really is entertaining and it helps you learn German at the same time, you can watch it on 40D
    Ohh cool, thanks for letting me know! I might watch that after my exams are over.

    yeah it was sein and it had to be conditional, hence wäre

    There's no chance that you would remember the German soap opera is there? Because I'm looking for a new German series to watch after finishing Deustchland 83, yes I'm still distraught.... It was such an amazing series
    I LOVE Deutschland 83 and I just bought it on DVD, apparently it is not popular in Germany!?
    Plus that friends question was so hard but when I got to the Music questions I thought that it was alright - think I did quite well on that question - it is my only hope I wanted to do sooo well in German but...oh well.... have to see what Spanish brings on Tuesday!!

    Good luck for your Spanish exam! That's amazing, I don't think I'd ever be able to take on two languages 😅

    Just a quick query, did anyone else put erlauben in the director question? I spent ages trying to decide whether to use sorgen or erlauben in the context of ".... that everything runs smoothly", and chose erlauben in the end. The meanings are so similar and I'm so annoyed now😩

    Yes it is true it is not popular in Germany lol, it had more success in the U.S and the U.K than in Germany. It was even the most viewed foreign series in British history. But yes still heartbroken that it's over.... But apparently the producers have said 83 was the first in a trilogy of also 86 and 89, looks like we will have to wait and see...

    When we did it in class, we meant it as actually staying at home, but I wasn't sure in the exam, so I did both..

    I put erlauben as i thought it made more semse, but nearly everyone else put sorgen

    I was stuck between those 2 though

    But surely erlauben makes more sense? Honestly idefk

    Does anyone remember specifically what that sentence actually was? I'm 100% sure sorgen did not work in it but I can't actually remember the specific sentence

    Hey, I'm also doing A2 this year and retook today and found it much easier than last year! There were a few that were difficult like some of the reading questions but overall it was much better! I think it's because at A2, you have to write essays in so much more detail using more structures and stuff. Also, you can sort of include some A2 vocab into AS essays. For example: I chose the holiday essay and I mentioned how it's important to go abroad to learn about other cultures to get a better understanding of the people and how they live. I then said how with the current immigrant crisis, if we understand them better, we would become more accepting of them. Also about how flying and other means of transport is damaging to the environment. So I included 2 big A2 topics (environment and immigration) into the essays. Also, the listening and reading is much harder in A2, so AS seems much easier!
    Ah that's great news, a real relief! Yeah I think I'll end up retaking it next year, it sounds like it's really worthwhile. Thanks Good luck in your other exams!
