Junior Italian Quiz - numbers, descriptions, saying your age, plurals and definite articles

Junior Italian Quiz - numbers, descriptions, saying your age, plurals and definite articles

This PowerPoint presentation can be used as a diagnostic assessment, a class activity, formative assessment or just a fun quiz for beginning Italian learners to have a go at. It is suited to junior Italian classes or general beginners who have some knowledge of numbers, descriptions, saying your age, plurals and definite articles. It is best to display this PowerPoint presentation on the whiteboard and have the students number their page 1-10 with space to write each answer in. After the quiz is complete, students can swap their answer pages and correct eachother's work. Alternatively you could run this activity as a fun group trivia task. You could collate the students' results as a record if using it for diagnostic (seeing what they already know), formative (seeing what they've learnt so far) or summative assessment (end of unit test) purposes.

Learn Italian The Fun Way - Bundle

Learn Italian The Fun Way - Bundle

Are you learning Italian? Are you looking for a fun way to learn Italian? I have developed a way to learn different languages based on my experience as an ESL teacher. This pack has 57 different settings for students to talk about in Italian. The worksheets themselves are in English and the students do need to translate the places and objects they see into Italian. At the end of the session, the students can play a fun game of word bingo to show they have mastered that day's vocabulary. Try it, it is a lot of fun for everyone!

ITALIAN VERBS (1) - PRACTICE & REVISION PACK - 99 VERBS

ITALIAN VERBS (1) - PRACTICE & REVISION PACK - 99 VERBS

PERFECT FOR PRACTISING AND REVISING 99 ESSENTIAL ITALIAN VERBS - ACTIVITIES, DIFFERENTIATED DOMINOES GAMES AND VOCABULARY QUIZZES! This combined pack of GAMES AND ACTIVITIES AND 3 DOMINOES GAMES features 99 essential ITALIAN VERBS in the infinitive form. Together, they offer an interactive and communicative alternative to 'traditional' vocabulary and grammar drilling activities, and really do help to create a lively language learning environment. They're perfect for pair and small-group work, enabling students to learn independently of the teacher. GAMES AND ACTIVITIES The game cards are versatile, and can be used for a number of language learning games; I’ve described several games you can play and ways you can use them in the classroom. They're great for a ready-made quick vocab quiz too! The game card template lets your students put their knowledge of ITALIAN verbs to the test as they create cards for each other - preferably from memory. There are three differentiated RECALL AND WRITE ACTIVITIES: CHILLOUT CHALLENGE Students recall and write all the verbs in English from an ITALIAN prompt - the ITALIAN verbs are in alphabetical order CHAMPION CHALLENGE Students recall and write all the verbs in English from an ITALIAN prompt, with the verbs appearing in random, rather than alphabetical order SUPERCHARGED CHALLENGE Students recall and write all the verbs in ITALIAN from an English prompt - this really does put their knowledge to the test - and is great for practising spelling in ITALIAN too. THREE DIFFERENTIATED DOMINOES GAMES GAME 1 features the verbs in alphabetical order, ITALIAN to English GAME 2 features the verbs in topsy-turvy order, ITALIAN to English GAME 3 features the verbs in topsy-turvy order, ENGLISH to ITALIAN - your students will really have to know their ITALIAN verbs to complete this sequence in record time! PLAY THE NUMBER GAMES! These are fast-paced vocab quizzes, great for starter, warm-up, refresher and plenary activities at regular intervals across the school year - choose a language calling out either the ITALIAN or ENGLISH verb, with students responding either verbally or in writing on a mini-whiteboard - I've also included two NUMBER GAME calling lists, both ITALIAN and ENGLISH. THE NUMBER GAMES can be played as a team game, with small groups, or with students playing as individuals against each other. I've classed the pack as suitable for ages 11-18, but it really does depend on when your students began ITALIAN, the level they are currently working at, and the level they are aspiring to. The pack consists of 3 non-editable files in a zipped format; please read the TERMS OF USE carefully - the pack is copyright, and for single-classroom use only. The resources are also available individually, each priced at £3.00 GRAZIE MILLE E BUON DIVERTIMENTO!
