GERMAN IDIOMS: HELPING YOU TOWARDS AN A*

This resource has been produced with the potential A* candidates in mind. There are altogether 48 idioms, but if the students can become confident in handling a handful of them, they are going to impress the examiners like me. the resource includes an initial matching up exercise, where guess work will come into play, then a complete list with examples of each. students then have the opportunity to practice and extend their vocabulary through tasks such as reading a definition and supplying the correct idiom, putting in the missing word, and replacing a rather humdrum phrase with a more impressive idiom. I hope they will engage your students. The tasks should prove challenging and enjoyable.
