A German word referring to a student's assignment to prepare a report and give a lecture. Often used
in English among exchange students
in lack of a better word.
How did your referat go?
I didn't get to give
my referat, because we didn't have time for me to give
it. The professor just totally forgot
about my referat, so I'll have to do it next week. And I stayed up all night working on my referat!
