    Hi, I'm currently in the middle of preparing for my french oral exam on April 22nd and i'm practicing past speaking cards and then recording them. But, I need some really good fluent/idiomatic opinion and topic (la mode, l’enseignement, la culture des jeunes etc) phrases to use during the exam.Here are some I've come up with so far (some are from Mot a Mot book)-:
    Opinion:
    J'accepte sans bronche
    Il est hors de doute que
    n’empêche que
    J'en viens a conclure que...
    cela saute aux yeux
    souliquer l'importance de
    de sucroit

    Also, could you give me advice how to stop saying "euh" filler less when i speak french?

    Il est hors de doute que / il ne fait aucun doute que (don't worry it's the same thing, just it sounds more correct this way ^.^)
    n’empêche que
    J'en viens a conclure que...
    cela saute aux yeux
    Souligner l'importance de
    de sucroit
    en outre / par ailleurs -> furthermore
    D' ailleurs -> besides
    Dans un premier temps / premièrement -> firstly
    Dans un second temps/ deuxièmement -> secondly
    En effet -> indeed

    Tbh I don't know how to stop say "euh" xD

    If you have some work to correct I can help too ^-^

    I am in the same position at the moment and am very scared! Instead of saying 'euh' try small fillers like 'alors' 'donc' and try set phrases like 'je me semble que' etc to give yourself time to think of what to say. But apart from that you seem to have some good set phrases you'll be fine!
    p.s mot à mot is my Bible hahah
