    Here I have the updated version of my oral exam presentation.

    I left my dictionary at home and so I was relying on dict.cc for "updated version". It gave me that but I wasn't too sure.

    Ah. I'd say it should be something along the lines of "Hier ist die überarbeitete Fassung meines Referats für die mündliche Prüfung."

    Can you try and steer the discussion if that happens? I'm hoping to do that if my lecturer asks me about a political topic I don't know much about.

    I suppose if the environment came up you could mention how big an issue it is right now and then talk about how it relates to figures like Angela Merkel and talk about her. Or say something like, this is one issue in Germany right now and talk about another issue.

    No. In fact, there are too many topics I really don't want to come up. My problem isn't that I don't have an opinion or that I don't understand, my problem lies in that I don't know how to express my opinion in German for some things. Like for example when we were having a debate about capital punishment, I really wanted to say something good on it, but I really didn't know the German to express myself.

    Gah I hate when that happens! I'm worried about that for my exam because I'll have to write another commentary. I guess the answer is vocab learning but I can't be bothered
