This morning I am interviewing myself in french for the Oral TMA04 using my recording app. It felt like an episode from the TV "Mastermind!"

I asked myself to state my chosen subject which I then answered in french.

Why have I chosen this subject? I gave the reason.
What are the advantages and disadvantages?

I answered the question fully.

So it continued....

At the end I said out loud to myself "you have correctly answered 20 questions, with no passes but plenty of hesitations and a few mis- pronounciations.
You are now allowed a cup of tea and a chocolate biscuit!"

I think I have found a good technique to use to practise orals (as well as TMAs and EMAs) by setting myself a series of 20 questions,  these should cover every possible  angle!
This was only the semifinal 
Tomorrow I will begin it again and try to do it all over again and I will try to do it correctly next time!!!
