This section of the exam comes after Reading Text I and consists of two questions. Some students opt here for guessing the answers, but top students will ensure to pay special attention to German Grammar. This section may be only worth a small amount, but your Grammar will be assessed elsewhere in the oral and written elements and is worth much more than 3.75% as a result. At the beginning, it may seem challenging to get your head around all the Grammar required, but our comprehensive Leaving Cert German Grammar Guide has all you need for exam success.
Revise all grammar sections in preparation for the exam. If there is a table or certain rules, write it down on the exam paper. Practice past papers and Grammar exercises regularly. As the old German saying goes, “Übung macht den Meister”.
- This question tests your knowledge of compound words applied to Reading Text 1.
- In the exam, you will be asked what two words each compound is made up of and what these compounds mean.
- Writing down the two words should be straightforward if your knowledge of vocabulary is adequate.
- For determining what the word means, you should break the word down into its sub-components and interpret them separately first and then together, keeping the text you have just read in mind.
- This question tests your knowledge of prepositions applied to Reading Text 1.
- In the exam, you will be asked to circle the correct preposition in each sentence given which relates to the content of Text I.
- For determining what preposition is correct, first look at the case which the noun after the preposition is in. Get rid of the prepositions that don’t follow this case. Then interpret the meaning of the sentence and determine which preposition is correct.
- Be sure you learn all the prepositions and their usage, including those that indicate time and location.
