I know...it's really difficult. I guess say as much as you can during your conversation classes... I always make the mistake of sitting back and letting other people answer before me. Maybe arrange to meet up with other people in your class at some other time as well and you could ask each other questions?

To answer your question- I've no idea what the best way is but I've just given you what I'm thinking of doing!

Thank you !! :)

thats helped me a lot. I think i should come up with questions to do with the topic i'm studying and then come up with answers i could learn for the exam.

Cool :) sounds like a good idea! What are you planning on talking about for the exam? (Just out of interest!)

Ok cool...that could be pretty interesting :) We're allowed to pick any topic under the sun, as long as it's on the A-Level syllabus so I'm hoping to do mine about Germany in the Second World War :/ I need to get a move on though...my mock is in Feb!!

I don't personally study German, but I study French. I find that when it comes to revising a language, the best thing to do (I understand everybody is different) is to just continuously condense all the notes you have made, until your left with a selection of words for the entire speech. When you are only left with a handful of words, continue to cancel them out till you no longer rely on prompts. Then focus on your accent and the way in which you deliver your speech! :)
