This starter is a MS Excel spreadsheet which has been designed to provide you with a simple test to give your pupils at the start of a lesson, freeing you up to do registers, get pupils settled etc. It will randomly select 20 words for your pupils to translate from a predetermined list of your choice.
This file has been preloaded with over 2000 words and phrases, split into sheets as follows;
Environment (96), Jobs (168), Health (280), Holidays (246), Places (254), Free time & Media (346), Relationships (308), School & Careers (196), Core (163), Food & Drink (130), Lifestyle (348), Interests (98)
Clicking macro enabled buttons allows;
• the translations to be set from German to English or from English to German,
• answers to be revealed individually or as a group
• all questions to be reset.
Pressing F9 will refresh the file and bring another randomly generated set of questions.
You can control the words to provide bespoke lists for each of your classes. Each list of words can be added to with words of your choice and each word in the list can be switched off using a drop down button. This will not remove the word from the file but prevents the word from being selected. Save a copy of the file for each of your classes and add words by switching them on as your class increases its vocabulary.
