Mastermind french Oral TMA 04 Practise

Visible to anyone in the world

This morning I am interviewing myself in french for the Oral TMA04 using my recording app. I did it in the form of an episode from the TV "Mastermind!"

I asked myself to state my chosen subject( just like in Mastermind!) which I then answered in french.

Why have I chosen this subject? I gave the reasons in french.
What are the advantages and disadvantages?

I answered the question fully.

So it continued....

At the end I then 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 great technique to use to practise french orals (as well as TMAs and EMAs) by setting myself a series of 20 questions, just like in the programme Masterrmind! Doing it this way should cover every possible question and  angle!
This was only the semifinal 
Tomorrow I will begin  practising it again and try to do it all over  and I will try to do it correctly next time!!!
