End of Term activity using authentic resources for beginners' German

End of Term activity using authentic resources for beginners' German

Here is an idea how to add more authentic resources as asked for in the new specifications. This is a worksheet and a presentation based on a German pop song and includes a gap fill, a translation task and a creative project. The song is slow and suitable for beginners but is ideally used after the introduction of numbers and plurals. (E.g. in chapter 2 of Stimmt 1). This download includes a PowerPoint with an introduction, the answer to the tasks and a translation of the text, a worksheet and a lesson plan. Note: This unit of work is based on the song Einmal by Die Prinzen. Please make sure you can access it on https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7ZHrsf4xDE4 or somewhere else before buying. The song is not included.
