If those 3 questions belong to the presentation task, you are asked to prepare a presentation about an exchange stay abroad or any kind of school-organised trip you attended (or that is planned for the future).

Go step-by-step. You could start by making a simple structured list in three parts (start, main part, closing part) in English, perhaps with short notes on German verbs/nouns/expressions that might come to your mind. Write short and clear statements with subject, verb and objects, as well as adjectives and adverbs. Don't overly limit the scope of words just because you don't instantly have the fitting translation in German. Focus on core "meaning&qu ot; in each statement. This way you create images in your head, a story to write/talk about.

– The first question is if you've ever been on such a trip: When, how long, where to.
– The next question will be about what the trip was about, what you have seen / learned about, done, experienced, found odd, liked/disliked, etc. Depending on how long your presentation is to be, think of at least 3 main talking points. You could also do 1 big topic / talking point and 2 minor points depending on what you can think of.
– After that you might want to end on one or two sentences on how you experienced something and what was the main lasting impression/experience compared to other aspects of the trip.

Then go and write the 3 parts in German …

You can also ask specific questions on how to say something in German or about grammatical mysteries etc. here on this thread or on the general "German Learners' Society" forum thread: https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/sho...p;amp;page=136

Another tool for specific questions on German is HiNative.com, where I also post answers. (You don't necessarily need the paid plan.) If you want to try that, I recommend using it via the website rather than the mobile app because writing on a mobile phone usually produces too much rubbish – something you don't want when it comes to learning language...
