    I have my French speaking exam in a couple of days and it has to be between 5 - 6 minutes and mine is currently 4 minutes and 40 seconds my presentation needs to be a minute long but it's only 40 seconds. I need help to make it longer but I don't want to add lots of basic sentences, a few would be fine. This is my paragraph atm:

    Bonjour, je m'appelle Piere Morhange et je vais parler de mom college. J'ai quinze ans. Mes amis sont pepinot et boniface. Ma vie ici est affreuse. Avant, je me devais pas nettoyer les toilettes Mais maintenant je dois faire ça. C'est épouvantable! Je vais à l'internat Fond de l'Etang parce que ma mère m'a dit je suis garçon difficile et elle est toujours occupé avec son travail.

    Hi Your sentences are very short and dramatic. Also, the sentence beginning with avant doesn't really make sense. You are saying that you were made to clean out the toilettes but now you have to do it?? I would say - je n'aime pas nettoyer les toilettes mais malheureusement je dois le faire de temps en temps.
    Your first sentences are also quite basic. i would try to string them together - Bonjour, je m'appelle Piere Morhange et j'ai quinze ans. Aujourd'hui, je vais parler de mon college qui est situé a . . . Bon, quelques mes bons amis sont Pepinot et Boniface et ils habitent a . . . aussi.
    Just a few suggestions
