Hi,

Does anybody here do German Extension?

If so, how do you approach preparing for the Monologues?

when i prepare for them, i focus on the structure rather than focusing solely on vocab or whatever
so first of all - answer the question or state your opinion of it
then there are two typed of structures i usually follow:
1: if my opinion is very one sided regarding the question
- introduce one point with a topic sentence
- define any terms that relate to the question and a background knowledge to the argument you are putting forward (keep it brief tho)
- then i say a specific example, so if the question was about peer pressure, i might say that loads of teenagers get affected by peer pressure at parties and behave differently, drink too much etc.

2: if the question is kind of two sided
- topic sentence for one side
- define any terms that are particular to your argument, maybe ask a retorical question to engage the examiner
-give a specific example
- then repeat this

woops pressed post too soon,
so anyway, repeat those things in that second type of question for your other side (negative) of the argument).
then for the conclusion for both, try and keep it to a couple of sentences, just briefly outlining the points u have said
i know its pretty hard to say everything u want to in 2 mins, but i dont think they mind if u go a bit over, just dont talk for 5 min lol
hope this helps
