German A Level Year 1 and 2 Revision Booklets with Facts Key Vocabulary

(1)
Two updated revision booklets for German A Level (Year 1 and Year 2), split up by topics and sub-themes from the AQA German text books to aid students with revision for the photo card speaking examination. The revision aid contains 4 pages per booklet. They combine a range of verbs, complex phrases, relevant facts and figures, which are key things that the examiners will be looking for to achieve the highest marks in their exams (according to the A Level speaking mark scheme). This German A Level revision document by sub-theme has already aided my students as revision for the photo card speaking exam. Please note: THEME 3 IS MISSING from Year 1 booklet, which has been done on purpose to get students to do a bit of work!

German Passive Lesson GCSE & A Level

German Passive Lesson GCSE & A Level

(0)
German GCSE and A Level Passive Revision Lesson I put this passive revision lesson together for a private A-Level German student, who has just started to learn German. It contains a step-by-step PowerPoint, starting by discussing current passive knowledge, as well as the passive in English with some practice. Normally, students don’t have too much of an issue using the passive in English when they start working through the activity. The lesson continues by discussing what is required for the passive in German, followed by lots of short practice, progressively getting more and more difficult. The final activity is completing the English sentences from the beginning with the German forms of the passive. Please note: the lesson does not contain any passive modal verb practice, but instead, plenty of passive practice using the present, imperfect, present perfect, past perfect and future and starts off discussing the passive in English, to ensure students understand the concept in English first. The passive cheat sheet image is something I found on TES and is not my work. However, I have found it useful to give as a handout to students (in addition to the lesson I have prepared) and so have attached it for you - with thanks to the original author for this!

Having never used Quiz Quiz Trade cards before, I did a quick HOW TO Google search today, modified the layout slightly and made my first ever (simple) resource! It’s targeted at year 7 German to go with Stimmt 1 Kapitel 3 for questioning and speaking. There is an Excel and Word Document available in case you need to edit or add more easily. Instructions: Word Doc Print the document and slice along each row (might need to duplicate for a bigger class) Give one each to students and ask them to fold the German section over. Students walk around and say the question to another student in TL (with or without looking at questions for differentiation) If the partner doesn’t understand they can ask for the question to be repeated/the German version to be shown/the English version to be shown, but they must answer in German as best as they can. If the person asking the questions believes they have replied correctly, repeat step 3 and 4 with the other person asking their question. If this partner answers correctly, swap cards physically over, move around and repeat steps 3-5 with someone else. Feel free to modify and use however you like. This is just how I’m using it.
MFL Writing and Speaking Feedback Grid

MFL Writing and Speaking Feedback Grid

Progress Ladder Feedback Grid for KS3 and GCSE Writing and Speaking for the 9-1 GCSE in French, German and Spanish I have created this Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4 writing and speaking marking feedback grid for the new AQA 9-1 GCSE and use it with general or assessed pieces of French, German and Spanish work. The grid is linked to a progress ladder that we use in school, which shows the elements students are required to include to progress from grades 1-9 in the two skills in these subjects. My school has been using it since October and I have found that it has really sped up my marking time. I circle elements that students haven’t included and they must refer back to it before completing their next piece of written or spoken work. I also insist that my students learn these elements by heart in order and they have done this, which is definitely helping with an improvement in grades. Hopefully it’s useful to you all as well!
