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!

MFL Talk boardgame 2- Home & Environment

MFL Talk boardgame 2- Home & Environment

Game for revision of AQA GCSE topics - I have uploaded boards for other topics too. I print these in colour on A3 and have them laminated. All you need are counters and dice. There are suggestions on how to use the game too. Very good for independent learning, encouraging spontaneous speaking (group talk) and GCSE revision. Do let me know if anything needs changing.

Weather: German Vocabulary Card Sort

Weather: German Vocabulary Card Sort

This is a card sort to help students learn words related to weather (40 words in total). This would be a useful task with younger groups or low ability groups. There are three separate files, depending on how you want to present the task.- The 'teacher copy' shows a grid with all items already matched. - The 'student version' is a random layout, print this out and give to students. They can then cut out the items and match them, or stick them into their workbooks.- The 'quick cut' is designed so that you can produce 10 packs of cards quickly and easily using a guillotine. Each page has the same card 10 times over. This allows you to remove words that may not be suitable or needed.
