    In the vast majority of cases he's right, because after a word like "with" you'll normally have some article or demonstrative ("the"/"this"/"a") or a plural noun, and all of those articles/demonstratives would cause the ending to default to -en. The trick was to find some construction like "with" + adjective + singular neuter noun, and there's not much there.
    Ahh yes, that's right, I remember now, that's for the "no marker system" as he calls it. It makes sense now

    Was musst du in deiner mündlichen Prüfung machen? Ist es nur ein Gespräch, oder?
    Es gibt einen Pruefer und eine Prueferin (beide kenne ich) und sie stellen Fragen ueber einen Roman, ueber einige Themen in dem Modul Contemporary Germany und ueber einige Videos, die ich studieren musste. Also ja, ein 20 Minuten Gespraech.

    Ich habe ein bisschen Angst im Moment, weil die Leute mit denen ich wohne, ein Gast hier habe und sie sind alle sehr laut.

    Hmm what is "Roman"? You're using it there, so I looked it up and found "novel", but in a Sido song he "sings"

    "Ich zeig dir die Stadt , yo Roman dreh den Bass auf"

    which wouldn't make sense if Roman was "novel" Does it have another meaning, or is it slang?

    *shrugs* It normally means "novel", and I don't think it has a slang meaning.

    Just listened to the song and it seems to be stressed on the first syllable rather than (as expected) on the second, so it might be someone's name.

    "Roman" (with the stress placed on the first syllable) is a first name, but "Roman" (with the stress placed on the second syllable) means "novel".

    In this context, Roman is probably the name of whoever is playing the bass guitar.:dontknow:

    Considering it's Sido, I doubt the bass is a bass guitar, but rather getting "Roman" to turn up the sub :tongue:

    Hold on. I've heard of him, and I'm English. :p: What's going on here? Are you one of those people who've been exposed to no popular music ever? :p:

    Even my girlfriend has heard of him and she doesn't listen to/know anything about music. Elizabeth must just have lived here too long and when back home, lived in a cave :tongue: For future reference, Elizabeth, though I'm sure it's not to your taste at all and you'll wipe it from your memory as soon as you've listened (if you even listen!)

    As in the examiner was? How did you communicate with a piece of cake? Being German, I assume it was black forrest gateaux or something?

    Seriously though, woohooo!

    No, no no. English idiom meaning the oral was really easy. The questions I was asked were really general.
