    DART in a manual

    Just a few quick questions for the people who passed their test in a manual - Is stalling (on a normal street while driving) an instant fail item? I've heard it is, but another person told me it's only if you stall whilst doing your kerbside stop/hill start. When you get in the car and...

    Developing Academic Language Skills - complusory workshops for UG

    Stop stressing people, this was the biggest waste of two hours. Nothing useful was gleaned, unless you're the kind of person who needs to be told not to include exclamation marks in essays or reports....

    Languages

    Just a quick question with regards to language subjects offered by unis. Is there a difference between, say, 'Spanish studies' and 'Spanish'? I've been reading all the subjects offered under arts degrees, I'm just worried that I'd think I was safe by going to a uni which offers spanish...

    Ich hab's nicht geschrieben, weil... ich die Abi schon gemacht hab. Haha. Aber ich muss jetzt arbeiten und darf ich kurz sagen, die Schule machte mir viel mehr Spaß! Als ich meinen Test fürs Abi schrieb, fand ich es eigentlich nicht so schlecht. Besser als erwartet und außerdem hat man ein...

    Exchanges

    I just got back from my exchange to Freiburg in the south of Germany. I was away for around ten months and changed host families once (although I still didn't get on with the new one...) Anyway if anyone has any questions, feels like speaking German or wants to compare exchanges, PM me!

    Na und? Hauptsache ist nicht alles perfekt zu sagen, sondern dich ausdrücken zu können. Wir machen alle ab und zu mal Fehler. Und wie man sagt, Übung macht den Meister, nicht?

    Wir sind doch alle beim du, oder? Ich glaube, keine braucht hier zu siezen. Naja. Ich hab letztes Jahr mein Abi gemacht, also dieses Jahr gibt es keinen Grund zum Feiern für mich... aber letztes Jahr war's anders. Ich war gleichzeitig wahnsinning froh, dass ich endlich was anderes machen...

    Sammy, du musst die vorherige Frage beantworten und dann die nächste Frage stellen - aber ich mach's jetzt für dich. Also, ich lerne jetzt Deutsch in der Schule - bin auf einem Gymnasium in Freiburg, Baden-Württemberg. Aber ich hab erst eineinhalb Wochen hier und dann ist mein Austausch...

    Tag!

    I would have to disagree with you there Galadrial. I'm not saying just using grammar books is the best idea, but definately don't make the mistake of not learning a good amount of grammar. It is critical if you want to go anywhere with the language, in regards to careers and the HSC, although...

    Beginners German

    Hi! The weather is fluctuating wildly at the moment. We've had days of 28 degrees (last weekend) and days where it's pissing down with rain (today). I would say the saying "April, April, macht was er will!" applies here, but it's May! Nevertheless I would say come visit Germany! Aside from...

    Gap Year

    It's easier to apply this year and defer (well, for me it involved filling out a tiny form and mailing it off) than it is to apply next year, simply because it's easier to apply to UAC as a current school leaver and you've got your careers advisor there to help you if you have questions.

    Tag!

    Komm Petar, wir sind doch alle beim Du hier, oder? The key to learning German is immersion and it's completely possible wherever you are. Go through grammar books, rent movies in German, watch German TV shows, read German websites and books, find people in your area who you can practise...

    who works/worked at Oporto?

    I didn't get official training, it was more like "OK, you start today, go serve some customers. You'll figure things out soon enough". So obviously I got paid from the word go and it took me about a week to get the hang of working the front end.

    open high?

    I would still get yourself a grammar book and start going through it. You'll obviously have the advantage of a more natural fluency and probably a larger vocabulary, but in the exam we've all got dictionaries so the non-native speakers, who have struggled with but nailed the grammar - often have...

    Hallo?

    Ja Sooverit, leider sind 3stündige Prüfungen typisch. Die Lehrer wollen euch für die HSC Prüfungen vorbereiten, die auch so lange sind. Aber es gibt einen Vorteil - OHS Schüler haben nur 2 Prüfungen als Aufgaben fürs ganze Jahr, im Gegenteil zu vielen anderen Fächern, wobei man 5-6 Aufgaben...

    open high?

    I wouldn't worry, I did German cont. through Open High last year and I was exactly like that too. In fact, I was probably worse than you... because I didn't even finish all my cover pages! Mr Keevil was a bit of a softie, never really told me off and so I fell further and further behind. But I...

    Hallo?

    If you do extremely well because you're INTERESTED in it, any subject will help your UAI. Just do it! Fuck all this scaling shit. Pick subjects you like, do well in them and when the results come out, you'll be cheering.

    Deferring Uni

    Don't defer just cause you can't start drinking at the bar straight away. However, the financial benefits of deferring could be the deciding factor - but ultimately you know what's best in your situation. I deferred from Sydney Uni for a year and as far as I know, I haven't had to pay anything...

    Way to bump an old thread! :P Btw, the sentences should read: Ich habe Bratwurst gegessen und ein Glas Orangensaft getrunken. :)
