GERMAN VERBS 25 MUST-HAVE VERBS REFERENCE LIST #1

GERMAN VERBS 25 MUST-HAVE VERBS REFERENCE LIST #1

PERFECT FOR SUPPORTING LEARNING IN YOUR CLASSROOM! Create an instant reference resource for students focusing on essential GERMAN verbs. I’ve found that the lists are a great learning support resource, and they’re really popular with students too. They work well when students keep them carefully in learning files or folders for current and future reference. They also work well printed double-sided and laminated for small-group work in class. This list is a collection of 25 high-frequency verbs that I work with in the beginning to intermediate stages of GERMAN learning programmes. They include regular and irregular verbs, some modals, and both separable and inseparable verbs. They are all in the infinitive form - it's an important step in learning is to ensure that students quickly develop a useful vocabulary bank, are able to recognise GERMAN verbs, and are confident with the meaning of those verbs in English - at that point we can move swiftly on to looking at conjugation and using the verbs in a communicative and practical context. Students shouldn't take on the task of learning 25 verbs all at once though - this is more of a longer-term reference resource that students can use to audit their developing GERMAN verb vocabulary. I’ve also gathered together three further collections of 25 ‘must-have’ verbs which you can download for free too. You might also be interested in my verb conjugation reference tables too, which are also free to download. There are two alphabetical lists - one GERMAN-ENGLISH, and one ENGLISH-GERMAN, as I’ve found that students prefer to have both as a reference resource. This resource is offered freely, but please read the TERMS OF USE carefully, as it is copyright. VIELEN DANK UND VIEL SPAß BEIM LERNEN!
