Some simple proverbs for learners to deduce. Answers provided. Once they understand them in English they can attempt to give an example in German to show when each of these could be used.

Pupils are put into pairs and must sit back to back. One pupil is given sheet A and the other B. One pupild reads the beginning of a sentence and the other must scan through the possible endings and read what they believe to be the correct one. Both must write in the missing part of the sentences. Took my class about 15 minutes. There is one extra sentence ending than start to make it a little more complex. Translate and manipulate the sentences at the end.

I have used this with weaker groups at the start of Year 10 (and before any wretched controlled assessments) to show pupils how translators cannot be relied upon to produce accurate language. We highlight the importance of good spelling in English and focus on choosing the correct translation where there are several available options. Sadly all of these are real examples !

I am using this quiz (my own) and the reading activities (edited from TES/colleagues) for a taster session of Russian with Year 7. There are already ideas on TES for teaching the alphabet and I will be using these too ! I have trialled it with Year 9. Distribute the quiz as a hand out and run throught the answers on the powerpoint. Share the alphabet with the pupils and work throught the two activities.

Powerpoint of facts and images to assist in delivery of a lesson about globalisation and fairtrade. While the structure and linking of ideas are my own, some of the slides may be from colleagues and other TES contributors. Hope it can be of use to others.

Pupils read the clues to extract information which they must write into the grid in English. Once this has been completed (took my class 8-10 minutes) they can write up sentences using the grid as a template in the first/third person (took my class a further 10 minutes).

Put pupils in pairs and supply each pair with a map of the London Underground (print off from Internet) They must use their knowledge of German plus the map to work out which station is being mentioned. A 10 minute fun activity which the boys especially seem to enjoy.

A reading starter designed for my Year 8s. Students match the book titles to the authors. It's just a bit of fun but does make them think. It took mine a few minutes to figure out what they needed to do but once they got going they were engaged. It's not often they ask me to make more of something so I took that as a success!

An activity based on a true story in the US where a man essentially exchanged a paperclip for a house ! This activity makes the pupils look up new vocabulary and made a great IT homework as I made them take photos of every exchange to enhance a written presentation.

A selection of music artists translated into German for pupils to translate. A light hearted starter which my class enjoyed. Includes some recent artists to make me look cool...just wish I knew who they were.
