KS4 German Holiday Complaint Letter

KS4 German Holiday Complaint Letter

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). I hope you have as much fun reading/teaching it as I did making it up!

die Unterkunft- accommodation STIMMT 2/ ECHO 2

die Unterkunft- accommodation STIMMT 2/ ECHO 2

Pupils will explore vocab related to accommodation firstly by repetition, then with some funny activities aimed at using the vocab in context and using maximum T.L. (ex: wo kann man das Etagenbett finden? --> In einer Jugendherberge etc...). Then it puts the vocab in relation to the past tense and all of this leads to a differentiated translation group race where pupils use prior knowledge of set past tense phrases (ex: ich bin nach Spanien gefahren, das Wetter war warm, Ich habe Fussball gespielt etc...). This can be made into a competition between groups, kids like it!
