German 5th Year Weekly Grinds
What will be covered in these Leaving Cert German Grinds?
Over the course of the academic year, Genevieve will cover in great detail every section of the Leaving Cert German exam in the weekly grinds (from the oral exam right through to the written production). She will focus on key aspects of the German oral exam (worth 25%) guiding students on how to answer with confidence exactly what and how much the German oral examiners want to hear in the exam. She will provide students with profitable pointers and vital strategies on how best to approach the reading and listening comprehensions and will demonstrate and equip students with essential vocabulary and grammar and writing skills required to reach an H1 standard.
In each weekly grind, students will receive detailed exam-focused notes covering all topics on the Leaving Cert German syllabus. Close examination of the marking schemes and a thorough analysis of the use of language and typical questions asked in the reading (worth 30%) and listening comprehensions (worth 20%), as well as the written production section, will enable students to confidently tackle difficult questions in these sections.
