GERMAN CONVERSATION GERMAN SPEAKING PRACTICE This is a set of 100 German question and answer cards that my students have always found really useful. The focus is on beginning conversation, ideal for Grades 7-10, depending on when your students begin their German program. With the structured speaking prompts, they are able to develop confidence in their speaking, working independently in pairs or small groups. At the same time, they are building their vocabulary and enhancing their German grammar too. There are 50 questions with 50 suggested responses. As students become more confident and competent, they begin to rely less on the prompt cards, and answer questions in their own way - and even ask them differently too, if their talk partner is using the answer card as the main prompt. There are several games and activities that my students enjoy, and I’ve described them for you to try with yours.

I use the cards for BEGINNER GERMAN students, though my more advanced students enjoy ‘going back to the start’ too, particularly near exam time. I always provide a reference booklet, and my students like to keep them in their learning folders for longer-term reference. When they create their own questions and answers for each other on the card template, they also find them really useful as a form of writing frame.

This resource consists of two non-editable files in a zipped format. I always laminate the cards, even though the prep is a bit time-consuming - they’re far sturdier and user-freindly, and will definitely last for years. The reference booklet is good to go - simply download, print out and copy - preferably in a booklet format, copied double-sided with double staples down the left-hand side. Please read the TERMS OF USE carefully - the resource is copyright, all rights reserved and for single-teacher / purchaser / classroom use only. It may not be copied, shared or rewritten in any way, in any format.
