Echo Express 1 Module 3 Vocabulary Matching Exercises

Echo Express 1 Module 3 Vocabulary Matching Exercises

These simple yet versatile matching exercises are made from the vocabulary used in module 3 of Echo Express 1. They can be used as starters, extensions, plenaries, homework and revision. They are also great for measuring progress when used as a starter and a plenary in the same lesson. They can also be colour-coded / traffic lighted to provide instant feedback as well as a focus for assessment revision. I always let pupils choose whether they want to write the answers in in English or the Target Language. Matching with lines never works! I have had great feedback from pupils when using them and hope you will too. Please let me know if you find typos / mistakes.

Great German Insults (classroom-friendly) Aimed at Y9

Great German Insults (classroom-friendly) Aimed at Y9

Some non-rude German insults aimed at a small group of year 9s. Aim of making the language seem a bit more fun. This is supposed to be a bit of funny lesson, and it's all fairly light-hearted. Ways to use resource: 1) Give out copy of the sheets and go through pronunciation of each one. Make sure pupils know where the stress lies - call and repeat. Included in one example is a video from Friends to demonstrate Joey's cute simpleness. Stop it after 20 seconds, as that gets the point across. 2) Sheet three is to see if they can correctly identify the appropriate insult for the people listed :D 3) If you felt it was appropriate (though I think you'd only do this with certain classes), you could get them to write an insult for a friend - be careful though in case some pupils are not high attainers, as they might take it to heart if they get called an "Evolutionsbremse") This will take roughly 20-30 minutes.
