German Phrases with English translation and meaning

German is such a beautiful language. German is alive, intuitive and sensitive. There are many phrases in German that fit perfectly into every situation. But you can not simply translate it into English. Then they sound funny and then "we have the salad". With this 48 Cards you can teach your students to use the right translation and also you can teach the real meaning of German phrases.

The Brothers Grimm

The Brothers Grimm

Nothing major here, but good for cover work or possibly as a starter activity for a cultural lesson. I used this as an extra activity for pupils in a low ability Year 7 group to do once they had finished a speaking assessment in class. Pupils read a short text on the Brothers Grimm and their most famous fairy tales (Hansel and Gretel, Cinderella etc), then answer some questions.
