CAKE

(no subject)

Hi everyone!

I have a Russian oral exam coming up, where I'm supposed to reproduce five short texts from memory that I've written on themes I've been assigned.

While the texts obviously have to be grammatically correct, we've been given to understand that we can basically do whatever we want to arrive at that end result, like taking entire sentences from Wikipedia or other Russian websites, asking for corrections from native speakers, and so on. The idea is to be sure that what you have is correct and then memorise it, so you'll have a small mental database of correct grammatical constructions, I guess.

As such, I'd be super grateful if any of you would be willing to take a look at what I've written and let me know what mistakes I've made, suggest more authentic sounding ways to phrase things, and whatnot.

Thanks so much in advance for any corrections or advice you can give me! :)
