A task to write a holiday complaint letter with step-by-step instructions to create a good answer. Used as an opportunity for students to write their first controlled-asessment style piece of writing, with plenty of support and room for extending with adverbial phrases (on separate sheet).

GERMAN - EUROPE POSTER & QUIZ PACK - AUF DEUTSCH!

GERMAN - EUROPE POSTER & QUIZ PACK - AUF DEUTSCH!

CREATE AN INSTANT AND COMPREHENSIVE INTRODUCTION TO EUROPE IN YOUR CLASSROOM, DEVELOP GEOGRAPHICAL KNOWLEDGE OF EUROPE AND ENHANCE SKILLS IN GERMAN AT THE SAME TIME!72 POSTERS WITH EUROPEAN COUNTRIES, CAPITAL CITIES & FLAGS4 QUIZZES, 4 CHALLENGES - 120 MULTIPLE-CHOICE QUIZ CARDS, COUNTRIES & CAPITAL CITIES WITH RECALL & WRITE QUIZZESThe posters give your learning environment a great multicultural look and feel, at the same time promoting GERMAN as a living language, featuring in the everyday life of your - and your students’ - classroom. There may be a number of countries and capital cities that students do not know, or are not aware of, so the posters can help students develop their general knowledge and understanding of EUROPEAN GEOGRAPHY. I’ve included a range of islands, such as the FAROE ISLANDS, to extend students’ knowledge of EUROPE a little further, and I’ve also shown some countries, for example ARMENIA, that are often classed as belonging either to EUROPE or to ASIA. I’ve also included two posters for some countries, such as GERMANY, officially known as BUNDESREPUBLIK DEUTSCHLAND - you can choose either the more frequently-used ‘DEUTSCHLAND’ or the ’BUNDESREPUBLIK DEUTSCHLAND’ to display.With the quizzes, students can further develop their knowledge of the geography of Europe in a cooperative, communicative and interactive way, using GERMAN as the means of communication. The quizzes are great for listening, speaking, pronunciation and reading out loud, working well as both a small and whole-group team activity. There are four speaking/writing challenges: CHALLENGE 1 prompts for a specific capital city; CHALLENGE 2 prompts for a specific country; CHALLENGE 3 prompts for a capital city in writing; CHALLENGE 4 prompts for a country in writing. The quiz card templates allow students to put their memory to the test in a different way, and to apply their knowledge very practically, as well as engaging with some basic writing in GERMAN: they can create their own set of multiple-choice questions for each other! There is also an alphabetical by country reference list of all countries and capitals, which students find useful to read through before playing. Laminate the cards and reference sheets if you can - you’ll be able to use them for years to come! The posters and quizzes are also available as separate resources, each priced at £4.00.The resource itself comprises 3 non-editable files in a zipped format; please read the TERMS OF USE carefully - the resource is copyright, and for single-classroom use only.VIELEN DANK UND VIEL SPAß!
