Exam tips

  • Try to extend your answer rather than giving the bare minimum. Keep giving and explaining your opinions - not like Sinéad who never gives enough information.
  • Try to use a variety of vocabulary and phrases to improve the quality of your answer.
  • Using simple, common phrases such as 'caithfidh mé a admháil' and 'i ndeireadh an lae' help to give a fluent, natural feel to the language you use.
  • Show that you are familiar with the various tenses by using correctly some verbs in a tense other than the main tense of the answer. Note how Micheál managed to include past, present and future verbs in his response even though his answer was mainly about what he would like.
