Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
So I have to memorize a kind of lengthy paragraph for an oral exam, but no matter what I try nothing seems to be working too well. I'm far from being fluent in French, so it's basically turning into memorizing a list of words I'm not familiar with. I tried taking just the verbs of each sentence and trying to make a phrase, but then I can never remember what the rest of the sentence is that goes with it, and it's only worse when I try to do the same thing with the verbs in English. I've also tried learning one sentence at a time and repeating it, then moving to the next one, but I can get as far as maybe 3 sentences (of about 15) before I totally blank or make some crazy error. Is there some method that would make this easier?
I should mention we're allowed to have an outline with us as we present, but it can't be "too detailed" or have more than 10 words in English.
