German Passive Lesson GCSE & A Level

German GCSE and A Level Passive Revision Lesson

I put this passive revision lesson together for a private A-Level German student, who has just started to learn German.

It contains a step-by-step PowerPoint, starting by discussing current passive knowledge, as well as the passive in English with some practice. Normally, students don’t have too much of an issue using the passive in English when they start working through the activity.

The lesson continues by discussing what is required for the passive in German, followed by lots of short practice, progressively getting more and more difficult. The final activity is completing the English sentences from the beginning with the German forms of the passive.

Please note: the lesson does not contain any passive modal verb practice, but instead, plenty of passive practice using the present, imperfect, present perfect, past perfect and future and starts off discussing the passive in English, to ensure students understand the concept in English first.

The passive cheat sheet image is something I found on TES and is not my work. However, I have found it useful to give as a handout to students (in addition to the lesson I have prepared) and so have attached it for you - with thanks to the original author for this!
