German Pronunciation Lesson

German Pronunciation Lesson

This is a resource that I originally made to help my Year 11 with their pronunciation for one of their upcoming speaking assessments. It features many of the main commonly mispronounced sounds, with various example words. It the builds up to a slide with a mixture of words and sounds, culminating in some really long words, just for fun! As a bonus, I have left in the last activity which was to help my class memorise a paragraph, something which, obviously, we are moving away from again, but still might be useful (it seemed a shame to delete it anyway!)

German alphabet

German alphabet

Teacher presentation introducing the German alphabet. Puzzle to solve first as the starter rearranging a familiar phrase. Then there is drilling of the alphabet sounds. Pupils complete a short dialogue introducing themselves and spelling their name. To consolidate learning there is a quiz of 9 common German words in the English language e.g. Fahrenheit that the pupils have to spell using their knowledge of the German alphabet. Also included is a print out of the alphabet that is ideal for learners to stick in their book for future reference and encourage independent learning.

Grammar Jenga

Grammar Jenga

1. Purchase enough Mini-Jenga sets (Topple Tower) for each group of 4 in your class (= £1 each)! 2. Label each wooden block with a number (1-48?)! 3. Assign to each number a challenge: e.g. grammar (conversion [spielen = gespielt]/translation [spielen = to play]/answer [Hast du am Freitag Federball gespielt?]) e.g. vocabulary (conversion [spielen = das Spiel]/translation (Wir haben am Samstag das Spiel verloren! =We lost the game on Saturday!)/sentence [spielen = Ich spiele Samstags mit Freunden im Park Fussball!]) e.g. pronunciation (word [verlieren = /fe-lear-r£n])/sentence prominence/intonation) 4. Provide each student group with the challenge sheet and the answer sheet. 5. Ascribe points to Easy (1), hard (2) and harder (3) tasks and students tally their scores. 6. Play Jenga as per normal, but the winner is the one with the most points from the challenges. My thanks to Emilie Burguin for her inspiration!
