Worksheet on Timetables and Opinions on School Subjects

Worksheet on Timetables and Opinions on School Subjects

Students need to extract information from a written text and a timetable in order to answer a set of true or false questions. There is also a translation activity as an extension (this is why there are lines under each statement). The worksheet would be a good scaffolding activity to support students with describing their own timetables.

QQT Cards - German Speaking Activity on Digital Time

QQT Cards - German Speaking Activity on Digital Time

A class set of Quiz Quiz Trade cards to practise digital time in German.How Quiz Quiz Trade works:Every student gets a card. They get up and find a partner. They then 'quiz' their partner by reading out an English sentence for them to translate. Once both partners have done a translation, they swap cards and find another partner. The answer is on the cards so students can check that they are right. I like to give students a certain amount of time and for them to see how many conversations they can have in that time.

KS4 German: What should you be? Job quiz!

Fun independent activity for KS4 German. In lessons we covered jobs, personality words, and modal verbs: then students created a flowchart quiz using questions about personality and future plans (I used lucidchart.com to create mine!).

German Verbs (Verben)

German Verbs (Verben)

This resource is useful for students in Year 10-12 who want to revise or expand their vocabulary, in particular verbs. A few years ago, some of my students asked me for a vocabulary list with verbs only. I compiled a list (12 pages) over the last few years. I tried to make sure to use the most commonly used German verbs in my list but do not claim that this list is complete. I created a PDF file with four pages on one A4 page. The list is in alphabetical order. I highlighted the prefix of separable verbs (bold) and added a column with irregular past participles. I shaded any past participles which use 'sein' as the auxiliary. I also uploaded my list as a word document so that you are able to add any words you think I missed / or shorten it. Hope that helps.

FRENCH VERBS (1-3) - PRACTICE & REVISION - 297 VERBS

FRENCH VERBS (1-3) - PRACTICE & REVISION - 297 VERBS

PERFECT FOR PRACTICING AND REVISING 297 ESSENTIAL FRENCH VERBS!This combined pack of FRENCH VERBS GAMES AND ACTIVITIES SETS 1, 2 AND 3 features 297 high-frequency FRENCH verbs, and offers an interactive and communicative alternative to 'traditional' vocabulary and grammar drilling activities. The games and activities really do help to create a lively and multi-skill language learning environment.The alphabetical FRENCH-English reference lists of all 297 verbs work well as a learning support resource, and also as a whole-group reading out loud pronunciation and warm-up practice. The cards are versatile, and can be used for a number of language learning games; I’ve described several games you can play and ways you can use them in the classroom. They're great for a ready-made quick vocab quiz too! The game card template lets your students put their knowledge of FRENCH verbs to the test as they create quiz cards for each other.There are three differentiated RECALL AND WRITE ACTIVITIES in each workbook:CHILLOUT CHALLENGEStudents recall and write all the verbs in English from a FRENCH prompt - the FRENCH verbs are in alphabetical orderCHAMPION CHALLENGEStudents recall and write all the verbs in English from a FRENCH prompt, with the verbs appearing in random, rather than alphabetical orderSUPERCHARGED CHALLENGEStudents recall and write all the verbs in FRENCH from an English prompt - this really does put their knowledge to the test - and is great for practicing spelling in FRENCH too.I've classed the pack as suitable for Grades 9-12, but it really does depend on when your students began FRENCH, the level they are currently working at, and the level they are aspiring to. The games and activities are particularly useful as students prepare for examinations, and for the transition period between learning stages.The cards take a bit of prep – printing, laminating and cutting out. Laminating is certainly worth the effort and expense - you will be able to use the cards for years to come. The REFERENCE, RECALL AND WRITE booklet has 18 pages, and is best photocopied double-sided as a workbook for students to work through either in directed class time, or as independent learning at home. Encourage your students to complete the NOTES AND NEXT STEPS TEMPLATE to help them reflect on their learning, and to set progress targets.The sets are available separately if you prefer, each priced at $3.75. This pack comprises 6 non-editable files: the GAME CARDS x 3 and the REFERENCE, RECALL AND WRITE WORKBOOKS x 3 - the other files you can see are preview images to give you an idea of what the resource looks like as a whole. Please read the TERMS OF USE carefully: the resource is copyright, and for single-classroom use only.MERCI BEAUCOUP ET BON DIVERTISSEMENT !
