Guide To The Oral Exams

The Leaving Cert Oral Exams generally take place over a two-week period in schools around the country. Depending on your location and subject choice, you will be examined in Irish one week and French, German or Spanish in the other.

We have compiled a series of comprehensive guides to assist you in your preparation for these practical tests.

Written by experienced teachers and examiners, our guides to the oral exams in Irish, French and German are designed to help ease your nerves, build up your vocabulary and ensure you do yourself justice on the day.

Each guide offers guidance on exam structure and strategy, preparation tips, sample dialogue or illustrations of best practice, plus a helpful summary of the examiners’ comments on what the keys are to a good performance.
