Talking about your history special topic or your music practical in the Spanish Leaving Cert Oral

As a Leaving Cert student, you’ve got a lot to deal with apart from the oral examinations…be prepared in case your examiner decides to ask you about one of these special projects.

El proyecto especial para historia

El proyecto especial para la historia es como una redacción larga que se prepara con antelación. Cada alumno tiene que elegir un tema en que especializarse. Es mejor elegir algo que te interesa por alguna razón y así no te importará pasar mucho tiempo preparándolo. El proyecto valdrá veinte por ciento de la nota final así que he trabajado mucho en ello, pero me resulta bastante difícil explicarlo en español.

The history special project is like a long essay that you prepare beforehand. Each student has to choose a topic in which to specialise. It’s better to choose something that you’re interested in for some reason so you don’t mind spending as much time preparing it. The project will be worth 20% of the final result so I’ve done a lot of work on it, but it’s pretty hard for me to explain in Spanish…[but you should still try to explain it in this space!]

El examen de música

Esta semana es bastante difícil para mi porque no solo tengo este examen sino también tengo el examen de música. Tengo que cantar y tocar el piano/la guitarra/la flauta. Es muy estresante tener que interpretar una canción delante de un examinador. Yo he elegido una pieza de música/una canción de Bach/de Coldplay, porque me encanta la música clásica/la música de ese grupo.

This week is pretty tough for me because not only do I have this exam but I also have my music exam. I have to sing and play the piano/guitar/flute. It’s very stressful having to perform a song in front of an examiner. I’ve chosen a piece of music/a song by Bach/by Coldplay because I love classical music/the music of this group.
