German Greetings Speaking Activity

German role play oral activity for Greetings and Introductions unit vocabulary (Die Begrüßungen auf Deutsch). 24 printable conversation / skits cards included, in English and German. Reviews basic German words and phrases such as as Guten Tag (Hello), Guten Abend (Good evening), Auf Wiedersehen (Goodbye) and Bis bald (See you soon). Students will practise asking and answering questions such as Wie geht’s? (How are you?), Wie heißt du? (What’s your name?), Wie alt bist du? (How old are you?), and Wo wohnst du? (Where do you live?). My German basics resources are made for students beginning German and near beginners in KS2 or early KS3 (Years 5, 6 and 7) and equivalents but they may suit others, depending on experience. Please check the preview file to assess suitability.

These scripted German greetings dialogues are a good stepping-stone to more independent role-playing activities.

Print and laminate as required. In pairs, students translate the conversations on their card into German, practising speaking it together. The 6 English language pages are designed to be printed back-to-back with the 6 translation pages for student self-checking. If preferred, the translations could be printed as separate cards. The vocabulary card can be provided for support where required. An instruction page is also included.
