German present tense verbs worksheet

German present tense verbs worksheet

This worksheet is a structured and fairly simple way to practise using German verbs in the present tense. Spielen is written out in full as a guide, then there are 3 tasks. First pupils just choose the correct spelling of spielen from the list above, to complete the 10 sentences. Then there are 12 sentences in German with a gap to complete with the correct spelling of the verb which is given in the infinitive each time. Finally there are 10 sentences in German for pupils to complete with the correct spelling of some strong verbs (which may change their vowel). Again, the infinitives are given. Pupils are also asked to translate all the sentences into English. Answers provided on page 2.

They will also have to remember to send the other verb to the end and change it to its infinitive. They are asked to translate their sentences into English. There are 6 modal verbs in the present tense, plus future conditional of mögen, with 3 sentences to complete for each verb. Answers provided on page 2.

GCSE German tenses practice and translation worksheet

GCSE German tenses practice and translation worksheet

A two-sided worksheet which works through a set of tasks, leading up to two translations. It starts with simple tasks to complete the spellings of verbs in the present then perfect tense, asking pupils to translate these sentences too. Then a task using Ich möchte/Ich will/Ich werde + infinitive to translate sentences into German. Then a more open-ended task for pupils to make up their own sentences in all three tenses; this task can be made more challenging by requiring more able pupils to include certain additional information if you choose. Finally there is a pair of paragraphs for translation, one into English and another into German. The translations are both on the theme of holidays. Answers provided on same document. I have used this with y10 and y11, but also suitable for confident KS3 pupils who have covered the tenses.

As the exam season is approaching fast, at , we are delighted to offer you this verb challenge activity, using the perfektform. The first 2 pages contain grids of Geram, using the first person (84 verbs in total). The second 2 pages contain the same verbs in English.  However, as both sets are in alphabetical order, they are not mirror-images of each other.  Below is an idea of how to use this resources. distribute the German sheets to students, individually or pairs/small groups give them a time limit to identify as many as possible then give them the English sheets and get them to fill in the missing verbs, using a different colour pen - this way you can see how many they got in both stages get them to create sentences using the verbs.
