Introduce and review this unit with a 116-slide interactive PowerPoint (and additional PDF version). Includes greetings such as Guten Tag (Hello) and Guten Abend (Good evening) and farewells such as Auf Wiedersehen (Goodbye) and Bis bald (See you soon). Students will learn responses to questions such as Wie geht’s? (How are you?), Wie heißt du? (What’s your name?), Wie alt bist du? (How old are you?), and Wo wohnst du? (Where do you live?). Almost all text in this presentation is editable. Most slides feature answers that appear on the the click of a mouse. Recapping slides and role-play slides (with answer keys) are also included for plenty of oral practice and there’s a fun interactive Hexagons review game at the end. There’s enough here to plan multiple lessons around. In the Zip file, there is the original PowerPoint and a PDF version. While the PDF version does not retain the ability for teachers to reveal answers by clicking, it will still enable you introduce and review this topic if you do not have PowerPoint where you work. The Hexagons game is not compatible with PDF. Slides about where you live and where you come from focus on examples about Germany and other German-speaking countries, together with English-speaking countries such as US, Canada, England, Scotland, Ireland, Australia and New Zealand. This presentation is suitable for teaching younger or older students and adults as you have all the slides and examples you need to teach using either the informal ‘du’ or formal ‘Sie’ for ‘you’. It begins by using the informal ‘du’, which is ideal for younger students but at the end of the presentation (from slide 117), there are additional versions of relevant slides, the role-plays and the hexagon game, all using the formal ‘Sie’. You can either use the presentation all the way through, teaching both ‘du’ and ‘Sie’ or stop at slide 116 (especially if teaching younger students).
