      When doing the exam, write down a word that you don't understand and that you think is part of the answer. It helps for me, because after a while of looking at the word, you'll probably have some idea of what it is while you're doing the rest of the sections of the listening. It grows on you and you might know the word by the end. Even if you have no idea by the end, guess it. They might give you some marks for the Irish of it? Try your best, It's only the mocks and you've plenty of time to improve.

      thanks but ive been practising the aurals from the exam papers and I literally know the answers because ive practised so many times. is there any new aurals from other websites I could practise etc?

      I mean on the day. Go over vocab that's likely to come up i.e. Gaeltacht areas, different pronunciations, school things, jobs etc .

      I think focloir.ie have a feature where you can listen to the different pronunciations of the word in different areas.

      The listening is not even worth the paper it's on! If you do well in the oral with your sraith pictures etc and the paper 1 and 2 your grand but the listening is grand in the actual junior cert just don't get too bogged down about it! 👌🏻

      Yeah I went over a few of them Sarah. We don't have the option of the oral and the sraith pictures. I'm better at spoken Irish than written. I think I'm ready for the Paper 1 and listening now. We have the irish exam on Friday. It's only the mocks..

      I had the Listening today. We had one about the voice, a swimming competition , a girl who wanted to play basketball, and a fella who wants to drop to ordinary level maths. Did you have that paper? I found it hard enough.

      Aoife_9776

      DATS are the careers tests? You can't study for them so don't worry. And CSPE is basically a comprehension so don't worry about that either. I have just German listening. Written tests start Wednesday.
