    I had my speaking today!!!

    In good news I DIDNT LOSE MY VOICE MY THROAT IS STILL SORE BUT I MANAGED TO DO FINE yay
    In some bad news I was initially offered 2 cards of which one I couldn't take because I chose it as my topic...woops.

    I did card A (on music...which was actually pretty uhh difficult woops) and i was asked on my chosen topic (Gesund Leben) + werbung and familie
    --
    I almost cried because i kept saying "UMM AHH UMM" so ****ing often and as soon as the tape stopped recording i slammed my head down on the desk and said IM SO SORRY I SAID UMM SO OFTEN IM SORRY IT WAS BAD

    i asked the teacher if she could guess where id be and she said definitely within top 2 grades, but she wouldn't give me an exact

    so yay

    I hope everyone who has their speaking exam tomorrow does well. I'm just so worried that my mind will go completely blank and I'll freeze up. Hopefully no-one from AQA will be there, just my teacher

    It doesn't really make sense in English can you give the whole sentence for context?

    We're doing a lot of exam questions in class and we're doing a timed mock of a full exam on Monday. Fun times!
    German is definitely my hardest subject to revise for because I don't know how to revise for it.

    True. Are these exam questions from past papers?

    Ah okay I see, thanks. I wouldn't use the word wirklich here as it sounds a bit odd, I think völlig would be better.

    Ich bin der Meinung, dass ein Trendsport sehr neu sowie auch modern ist und normalerweise unterscheidet sich völlig von traditionellen Sportarten oder bietet ein neues Nehmen auf einen traditionellen Sport.

    I also amended the word order and added bieten (which means to offer/offers) to make the last part of the sentence sound like it makes sense.

    I did admittedly skim a bit of this but this does look a lotttttttttt betterrrrrr than before. I think you should consider maybe balancing the arguments (e.g. in paragraph 2 you mention about how a job helps you to pay for stuff and as such, but maybe put it on the flip side and show that having a job can cause stress and breakdown relationships etc) cause that'll affect content mark too.

    But yes there's much more varied vocab, more varied grammar and content is a lot better.

    I would guess again:

    Content: 17/20
    Grammar: 4/5
    Vocab: 4 or 5/5 I'm not certain.
    Accuracy: 3 or 4 out of 5.

    So low level estimate: 28/35, high level: 30/35

    Oh yeah be careful because here you've put:

    zB neue Aktivitäten oder Rechnungen

    You need to add verbs e.g. Aktivitäten zu tun oder Rechnungen zu behalen, it won't make sense otherwise!!

    These are only educated guesses and pieces of advice btw, I'm still a student myself. But thank you for the compliment also

    Also would you like me to explain the passive?
    Hello, just to let you know... I got my essay back and it was marked at 30/35 so again your guesstimate was spot on! Thank you

    It was about a new music academy and all of the things they would be teaching; it also mentioned the influence of music stars and how they could help the students. I believe the final question asked you about a musician that you liked or something.

    I should really know more as I chose that card, but lmao.

    It was a very difficult card.
