    Exam help

    On Friday i will have the oral component of my Russian exam(I am in the beginning level). I was wondering if anyone had any tips for me? Just general things.

    I was also wondering if someone could tell me how to say "is that right?" if i say something, but i am not sure if it is correct. i thought it was "это правильно?" but i am not possitive if that is right to use in that situation. I also would like to say " i understood everything except the verb" I am lazy....please help

    If this is in the wrong forum i am sorry.


    Thanks.

    you can also just say "правильно?" without "это", both ways are correct.

    Tip for oral exams.
    Say these words VERY often.
    Пожалуйста. Спасибо. Добрый день. Извините.

    And if your teacher is a woman, you can say
    ты - действительно сексуальная мама.
    Какая разница, умереть богатым или бедным?

    Какой толк от богатства если ты не счастлив.

    I was just kidding about the last statement of my post.

    Anyway, I think it may be a bad idea to use the phrase "это правильно" during the exam. It may be a sign of weakness.
    Be confident, speak with confidence and assume that everything you say is correct regardless of whether it is or not.

    Never say "Я не понимаю" or "Я не знаю" or other variants during the exam. It is a sign of weakness.

    If you don't understand something, simply say
    Повторите пожалуйста.
    Please repeat.

    My philosophy on learning languages (or anything for that matter), if you feel you have learned what you intended to learn, then the grade does not matter. Just do your best.

    If you don't mind that she will throw a chair at you:
    ты - действительно сексуальная клюшка.

    Congrats Kennedy!
    There was never a doubt in my mind that you would do well.
