GERMAN SPEAKING PRACTICE - 400 PROMPT CARDS WITH REFERENCE BOOKLETS - SETS 1-4

GERMAN SPEAKING PRACTICE - 400 PROMPT CARDS WITH REFERENCE BOOKLETS - SETS 1-4

PERFECT FOR DEVELOPING SPEAKING SKILLS IN GERMAN - QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS WITH A FOCUS ON BEGINNING CONVERSATION, CULTURAL INFORMATION AND SEPARABLE VERBS IN BOTH THE PRESENT AND PERFECT TENSE.PERFECT for speaking practice, and multi-skill language learning, TALK TIME IN GERMAN is a pack of 400 question and answer prompt cards that give your students structured talk opportunities, and will also get them listening, reading and writing. They’re ideal for independent learning, and perfect for pair and small-group work. The prompt cards also feature language and structures that your students are likely to meet in both earlier and more intermediate stages of their GERMAN learning, including modal verbs, word order, case and prepositions governed by the accusative and dative. I've classed the resource as suitable for ages 11-18, as it really does depend on the age at which your students began their GERMAN learning, and the stage they're currently working at.The reference booklets include all the questions and answers written out in full. Students find this a very useful learning support resource and it's also a handy whole-group pronunciation practice and reading-out loud resource. Students use the NOTES AND NEXT STEPS template to reflect on their learning, and think about what they might reasonably do to progress in their learning.The question and answer writing templates give students the opportunity to apply their GERMAN very practically, as they create both questions and answers for each other. This is a great team activity too.You can also use the prompt cards for a whole range of games, and I've described how to play several games and activities that you can start with. They do take a bit of prep: printing and laminating. Laminating is definitely recommended, as you’ll be able to use the cards for years to come. Print out an appropriate number of question and answer templates (black and white is fine). Students should ideally have their own individual reference booklet that they can keep in their learning folders to use for reference, practice and revision when they need to.Each set is available individually, priced at £3.00. SETS 1 & 2 are available as a combined pack, at the special price of £5, as are SETS 3 & 4 - you can see them here:https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/german-speaking-practice-1-and-2-200-prompt-cards-and-reference-booklets-11428118https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/german-speaking-practice-3-and-4-200-prompt-cards-separable-verbs-present-and-perfect-tense-11417814The pack consists of six non-editable files in a zipped format; please read the Terms of Use carefully: this resource is copyright, and for single-classroom use only.VIELEN DANK UND VIEL SPAß!

Learning To Speak German The Fun Way! - Bundle

Are you learning German? Are you looking for a fun way to learn German? I have developed a way to learn different languages based on my experience as an ESL teacher. This pack has 57 different settings for students to talk about in German. The worksheets themselves are in English and the students do need to translate the places and objects they see into German. At the end of the session, the students can play a fun game of word bingo to show they have mastered that day's vocabulary. Try it, it is a lot of fun for everyone!

German Grand Prix Game Starter Plenary Revision

German Grand Prix Game Starter Plenary Revision

To celebrate the German F1 Grand Prix at the Hockenheimring I have created this interactive game for my German students. Enter your own questions and multiple choice answers and watch as two teams battle it out to be the first car past the finishing line. Possible instructions on the first slide. ENABLE ALL MACROS AND REDUCE SECURITY ON YOUR PC FOR THIS TO WORK PROPERLY. I will split my class up into two teams and give everybody a mini whiteboard. Pupils will write the answer of the question on their mini whiteboard and hold it up after my count down. The team with the most correct answers will be the team who's car will move around the screen (just click on the car) Enjoy, and I look forward to your feedback :)

Jollyphonics

Keywords: Pronunciation, Phonics, Sounds of German. This lesson can be the first lesson for new learners of German (either KS2 or KS3). It blends visual, auditory and kinaesthetic learning strategies to embed the key sounds of German so that learners can apply this knowledge straightaway to new language they encounter. They develop autonomy and confidence quickly with this approach. Look out for the other lessons in this term's work. There are 33 PowerPoint lesson resources in this series that offer progression and generate high levels of motivation. Author: Leigh McClelland, AST, Comberton Village College
