“I found it to be super helpful as we were able to practise speaking the language in a way similar to the actual exam, with people we didn’t know,” Sapphire of Year 12 said.
“It really allowed me to not only practise my pronunciation but also pick up on areas and questions I needed to improve on, which I didn’t even realise before.
“Although it was a bit nerve-wracking at first, by the second session many of us found we had eased into it. I actually really enjoyed being able to converse with someone else in another language.”
It proved to be a highly useful learning opportunity and enjoyable day as the students expanded their speaking skills.
