I’ve used these quick conjugation workbooks in my GERMAN classes for a long time. My students find them really useful for both practice and revision. This workbook focuses on 25 high-frequency irregular and mixed verbs in the imperfect tense, with 150 ‘quick’ conjugations. I use them in a range of learning contexts, such as independent work either in
class time or at home, holiday refresher work, or individual activities for cover/sub lessons.
My students like to have several opportunities to work through the workbook, a couple of
times a semester across a whole school year. This helps them to map progress in a very
clear and structured way. .
The workbook has ten pages with the following quick conjugations:
Two alphabetical verb reference lists: GERMAN-ENGLISH and ENGLISH-GERMAN
Three conjugation challenges, each with 50 individual conjugations:
CHALLENGE 1: each verb conjugated in GERMAN across a range of pronouns, with students writing the corresponding ENGLISH verb conjugation.
CHALLENGE 2: gives the infinitive of each verb in GERMAN, specifying the target pronoun. Students write the corresponding verb conjugation in GERMAN.
CHALLENGE 3: students write the corresponding GERMAN verb conjugation, and its infinitive, from an ENGLISH prompt.
NOTES & NEXT STEPS template, which encourages students to think about how their understanding of GERMAN conjugation works, what progress they have made, what their targets for improvement might realistically be, and what they might reasonably do in order to meet those targets. We sometimes do this together as a whole-group discussion, which works well too.
There is also a 6-page ANSWER KEY booklet which my students really like to have, either to self- or peer-assess - answer keys are also perfect teacher-time-savers!
