MFL Speaking and Writing Level Ladders

I keep laminated copies of these, and I distribute them to students when they are preparing to sit an assessment. I also use it with my year 9 top set classes as part of a lesson where I provide them with exampler pieces and ask them to mark it and give it a level - which is also useful to ensure that I can trust their peer-marking!

German Escape Room for A Level revision

A lesson that your students will not forget quickly! This resource was a featured revision resource on TES.com
https://www.tes.com/teaching-resources/blog/a-levels-revision-mfl?utm_campaign=13737483&utm_content=mfl-roundup-2019-05-15&utm_source=exact-target&utm_medium=email.
A spy themed escape room activity in which students need to do German language related puzzles to get a code to jump from one website to the next in search of the “mole” . Ideal as vocab and grammar revision for year 12 or year 13 for AQA German AS/A Level (based on the Hodder text book). Will keep them focused even in the last lesson before the holidays!
It includes vocab from the topics celebrations, digital world, architecture and Berlin.
There is a “digital only” version and a" digital+paper" version. The “digital+paper” version is more fun because it involves the game website and real life puzzles ( jigsaws, code wheels and string activities) that make the activities more “real”, but requires quite a bit of preparation by the teacher. The “digital only” version only requires two print outs and a little bit of taping and can be done last minute.

Comments from my 6th form students:
“This is intense!” “This was the best lesson I’ve had in some time!” “Can we do another one soon?”

The resource includes:
Link to “Findet den Maulwurf!” website
Teacher instruction, including how to put together the puzzle items and example pictures
Teacher answers
Powerpoint with game introduction
Puzzles to print out/Files for digital versions
