How to Get Top Marks in Leaving Cert German
If you’re gearing up to ace your Leaving Cert German exam next year, you’re in the right place!
We understand the importance of achieving top marks in this challenging subject and we’ve got you covered with some invaluable tips to help you succeed.
We help students to maximise their grades, grow in confidence and reach their full potential.
Tip 1: Master German Grammar
Make sure you have a thorough understanding of German grammar. This is key to mastering the language. Begin by making sure you understand the basics, then start focusing on the more complex aspects. Doing this will stand to you for all aspects of the Leaving Cert German exam.
Tip 2: Practice with Past Exam Papers
Use past exam papers (available on the State Examinations Commission website here) to familiarise yourself with the format and types of questions that appear in the Leaving Cert German exam. This will also help you to manage your time effectively during the actual exam.
Tip 3: Speak, Speak, Speak
Don’t just focus on reading and writing. Speaking is a crucial aspect of language learning. Practice speaking to yourself (in front of the mirror might help) or find yourself a language partner. Speaking regularly will enhance your fluency and confidence in expressing yourself during the oral exam.
Tip 4: Embrace the Culture
To truly excel in German, immerse yourself in the language. Watch German films, TV shows, and listen to German music or podcasts. Reading German books or newspapers can also help. This will improve your comprehension skills, vocabulary and cultural understanding.
