German GCSE translation practice (translation pitfalls)

German GCSE translation practice (translation pitfalls)

These are two revision lessons for Y11 to practise the main difficulties with translations: difference between mag/gern, using connectives and the correct word order, comparative, impersonable phrases, infinitive phrases, using seit. The lesson assumes that the students have learned these grammar topics previously, and this is just revision. The lessons are designed as carousel activities, where students translate sentences in pairs. I did it with my Y11 set 2 this year and they enjoyed it and found it helpful.

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.
