German:  Paris Attacks Listening

German: Paris Attacks Listening

After the attacks in Paris on the 13th November, a German singer/songwriter has gone viral with his peace song written in the aftermath of the attacks. The listening activities link to youtube, there is a gapfill to complete for both an interview with the singer and for his song. The video for the song shows the lyrics, so you might not want to have the video visible for the gap fill. This is not a complete lesson, just something you could use with your class.
