German present tense verbs worksheet

German present tense verbs worksheet

A worksheet with 20 German sentences, each showing only the infinitive of the verb needed. Common regular and irregular verbs are included (wohnen, spielen, gehen, haben, sein). Pupils write the correct spelling of the verbs to match the person/subject shown, and can also translate the sentences into English. A good homework idea, as Google Translate won't help that easily! This is meant for beginners, as each verb is used several times to aid reinforcement. Document has two copies, to fit on one page of A4. Answers provided on second page.
