First of all the German Oral is no big deal. Actually it’s piss compared to Irish and French. You can learn off about 85% of it.
You get five picture stories and five role plays to learn. You do one of each on the day each worth 30 marks out of 100. Thatâ€™s 60% of the oral that you just learn off. While doing the oral make sure you manipulate the role play card. You could nearly do a decent role play and get 30/30 without ever seeing one before.
Also keep the picture story simple. You only need a 15 sentences for top marks. Donâ€™t pass any heed of the nerds and losers who learn pages. I got an A1 with 15 sentences for each. I know its attractive and I donâ€™t mean to sound like a teacher but donâ€™t gamble. Learn all of the role plays and picture stories. It doesnâ€™t really take that long.
You can also easily get 20/40 on the 5 minute general conversation. You will not be asked anything hard only about school, holidays, sport and the family. Nobody gets abstract questions.
This is another place to pick up the marks. I cannot really offer much advice except to practice as many as you can from the past papers.
