Didn't like the translation but the holiday 90 word was a blessing. Okay all around but completely messed up the translation.

16 marker- Technology and 32 marker- lifestyle was good!
Personally, the translation was ok. I missed a few words such as "industries" and "each other" but hopefully my word order was fine

GCSEs are finally over guys! I hope everyone enjoys their holidays

EDIT- missing words:
industries- Industrien/Branchen
each other- einander

OOOOOHHH I changed die Gegend to das Gegend last minute :///// FFFF

Guys, I studied global issues hardcore. For the 32 marker I picked health. Is it okay that I said "breathing in pollution is unhealthy." ????

Oh my God that's some pure waffley A-Level type abstract thing mate.
Do you think (since I HARDCORE revised global issues) it's okay that I put "breathing in pollution is unhealthy"?

I think thats okay just as long as you included what one should do in order to stay healthy

um Fit zu bleiben

what other things did you include for health/ lifestyle?

I talked about diet & fitness.
A paragraph about diet.
A paragraph about fitness.
And a random one about not breathing in pollution.

I mean it did specify the tenses, but if the examiners are nice I'm sure they'll be lenient enough. You'll get points for content though.

It was great! Should get full marks on the writing and 7/8 on translation - I didn't know some of the vocab like 'see each other' and the word for dirty completely slipped my mind but it's all good. Hoping for a 7 but I really doubt I'm going to get it
