What way do you learn your sraith pictuirs?

Do you learn them off by heart or do you do something differrent?

No need to learn them off, obviously learn about two or three phrases for each picture in the sequence. You won't remeber all twenty. The examiners tend to focus on the fluency of your delivery of the phrases (does that make sense to you). This is how I did it for my oral and it went alright.

Certain phrases can be used for multiple sraith pics, like saying that "the sun is in the sky", or "they were in front of ___", and it's the same for the questions you ask at the end, you just need to know a couple questions that you can use for any sraith pic, like "where were they at picture 1" or "what was the weather like in picture 3"

learn a phrase per picture that you can build the story around. Have phrases you can use for multiple pictures (eg bhí X an domhain uirthi) and have a seanfhocail for each sraith if possible

have about 5 or so key words and phrases for each and try use general language for the rest! Better keeping it mildly simple and not making mistakes than learning them off and making silly mistakes that show you dont actually know what you're saying

I took one a week from the start of 6th year, after that I just made sure I was comfortable with all 20. Its not as bad as it seems alot of the pics are similar and overlap with phrases and seanfhocails

Whole irish exam is rote learning

There are lots of ways. I prefer to blend mine up in a smoothie and drink it in one big gulp. Then puck it out and that usually works for me

what i found useful was reading it and then recording myself saying it without looking and then seeing how much of it i got right, i broke it down to 2 a week to make it easier
