listen to a recording of your oral presentation on an ipod or mp3

For excellent pronunciation, be sure to use the internet - www.forvo.com is an excellent website which I use myself.

Also be sure to create a presentation which is longer than your exam board's given time so that you teacher can ask you some questions which you will hopefully already have prepared answers for, as it will be in your presentation. Simply a continuation.

Don't look at the microphone in the exam.

It is scary.

practice with someone else before hand who isn't really that close to you, or just simply anyone, so your confident enough

Prepare :D

Usually I poop brick before I go in. This time I went through my presentation, walking as I did so - and felt sooooooo much better! :D

If you're not sure of the question, ask to hear it again - don't freak out!

Not 100% confident! Or forgotten anything - say what you know! You'll remember a lot more if you're relaxed! 

Good Luck, :P

Pronounciation...

common mistakes.

In plural, for example, 'ils fument' DO NOT pronounce the '-ent'. say it like 'ils fume'. Same with all plurals really... 'ils boivent' say it like 'ilks boive'.

Try and make a gutteral sound with 'r'. tres (very - sorry no accent) sounds like you are retching.

beaucoup...i bet this word crops up a few times. DO NOT say the 'p'...it is 'beaucou'.

If you are a girl remember to make your endings clearly feminine...'paresseuse' instead of 'paresseux'.

Enjoy speaking French, and you will sound better.

if there is an accent on the end of a word to make it past tense...for example 'j'ai joue' (the bold ones having an accent) PRONOUNCE IT!!!!!!!! It is the thing which makes it noticibly past tense. Say 'J'ai jou'eh'' 'Je suis allee' is 'je suis all-eh'.

Do you any particular words you are struggling with? Don't be scared of asking! Take it from someone who has got full marks in all 3 of my French Orals.

Good luck! :)
