    Does anybody have a list of possible questions that the examiner could ask you about the cultural topic in the oral? I'm doing a period of 20th century history and a German film director for my 2 topics. Thanks

    Hey, my teachers gave us a list of potential questions to consider before the exam, although the conversation is likely to go off on a tangent because it's meant to be spontaneous X) Anyway, for the period of 20th century history (we're doing das Wirtschaftswunder) you could think about things like
    Was waren deiner Meinung nach die wichtigsten Ereignisse in dieser Zeit?
    Welche Ursachen und Folgen hatten diese Ereignisse?
    Welche wichtigen Persoenlichkeiten haben in dieser Zeit gelebt und welchen Einfluss haben sie ausgeuebt?
    Welche Bedeutung hat diese Zeit fuer uns heute noch?
    Wie stellst du dir das Leben der Menschen in dieser Zeit vor?
    Wie haettest du dich wohl gefuehlt, wenn du in dieser Zeit gelebt haettest?

    And for the cultural topic (we're doing Goodbye Lenin, if you're talking about the work of the director these might apply):
    Worum handelt es sich?
    Welche Figur hat du am meisten gefallen? Inwiefern kannst du dich mit dieser Figur identifizieren?
    Was wollte der Regisseur mit diesem Film sagen? Hat er diese Ziel erreicht?
    Wie hat dir der Film gefallen?
    Was lernen wir ueber Geschichte in dieser Zeit?
    Haettest du gern in dieser Zeit gelebt?

    Hope some of that is helpful
