German:  Paris Attacks Listening

German: Paris Attacks Listening

After the attacks in Paris on the 13th November, a German singer/songwriter has gone viral with his peace song written in the aftermath of the attacks. The listening activities link to youtube, there is a gapfill to complete for both an interview with the singer and for his song. The video for the song shows the lyrics, so you might not want to have the video visible for the gap fill. This is not a complete lesson, just something you could use with your class.

Marko talks about the history of the Berlin Wall and what has changed since it came down. He shows us where the wall used to be and then goes into detail about when and why it was built and the trauma it caused to families. He then shows what happened when it was pulled down and the redevelopment of Potsdamer Platz to make it the new centre. Rolli and Rita then sing a song about the town. They use some good phrases such as 'hier kann man vieles machen'.
