Fun with Languages: Online Collection of Activities (German, French, Russian and Spanish)

Fun with Languages: Online Collection of Activities (German, French, Russian and Spanish)

Online bank of activities, games, worksheets and resources to help in learning a foreign language collected together in an easy to navigate website. Useful as cover lesson activities, teaching activities, revision and homework. Resources for German and French for all ages and abilities KS2-KS5. Also includes resources for Russian and KS3 Spanish. Formerly known as 'Suttonhighmfl'. I have posted this using a free webhost so that this very extensive collection of resources is available free of charge to all teachers and learners of languages. Please note that the activities that require Flash work on a PC but not on an iPad or phone. Some activities such as jigwords are gradually being updated as the free host does not support this type of file. This website was first published in 2004 and is regularly updated with new resources.

Goodbye Lenin Filmanalyse

Goodbye Lenin Filmanalyse

Carefully guided questions in German to encourage a deeper understanding of ways a director creates a scene through positioning, movement, mise en scene, camera, sound, light etc. I kept the language very accessible. I will give it as a homework task but you might want to do it in class. It is generic only the scene pictures to explain the terminology of camera shots are from Goodbye Lenin.

German songs - ready prepared worksheets

German songs - ready prepared worksheets

As the kids love love songs, I went through my sister's and my cd collection and chose 18 songs that I liked and that represent a wide variety of musical styles of the last 20 years. I made worksheets for each song for the students to fill in as they listen. Some work better than others, just see what works for you and your classes. Many possibilites of exploring it further. Am just always astonished how many kids go away and download the music afterwards. Enjoy!
