  1. Thanks for the replies! I know what you're saying with repetition as I have used FSI German where you practice hundreds of drills over and over. Still, I find it hard to just make up new sentences on the fly. I don't know if it's a problem of confidence or just a lack of vocabulary. I guess I just need to practice more...
  2. FWIW, I was placed at German B2 based on a written test but my oral skills are seriously lagging behind. Some kind of objective standard is indeed necessary in order to really judge the level of competence, but in order to be reliable it should really be split into oral/written and comprehension/production.
  3. I'm currently learning German and had recently took a written placement test that put me at B2 level. However, I really don't feel I'm able to communicate at this level. Sure, I can write some sentences but when I actually have to say something I'm struggling to find words. I know what you'll say - just practice speaking more. Unfortunately, I don't really have many opportunities to practice as I don't know any speakers. Are there any useful learning tools/techniques for for overcoming the oral communication barrier?
