them that they are going to see and hear some phrases from exercise 1. According to their
understanding of the German sound-spelling link, students write the phrases / key words on miniwhiteboards as you read them and share their answers with a partner. Collect ideas from the class,

Refer students to the ten phrases in exercise 1 on page 6. Students list the phrases in order of ease of
learning. Give them three minutes to learn them and then they test each other in pairs. Ask students to
reflect on exactly what they did to learn the vocabulary: Did they use cognates / parts of words they
already knew / spot patterns in verb endings? Collect ideas and ask students to consider the techniques
their peers used next time they are learning or reviewing items of vocabulary.

Speaking. In groups of five, students practise the phrases from exercise 1 by asking four other people
what they do on the computer, following the example provided. Students should make a note of each
answer in preparation for exercise 4. Encourage students to mention more than one activity in their
answers, and to use just one key word for their notes rather than whole sentences, e.g. E-Mails rather
than Ich schreibe E-Mails.
<GB>Grammatik: Present tense verb endings
Use this grammar box to review present tense singular verb endings. Ask students to give you
examples using the other verbs from this unit. Ask them to point out how the irregular verb laden is
different from the regular verbs (the vowel is changed by adding an umlaut). This grammar box will
help students prepare for exercise 4. For more on the present tense, see the Student’s Book, page 195.

they can adapt the phrases from exercise 1 by changing the verb ending, as in the example provided.
For the second part of the activity, pool the results of the survey, asking each student to read out a
sentence about one other person until everyone in the class has been mentioned.
[ICT] Record the class results on the board, before asking students to draw a pie chart of them. Discuss
with students how best to go about this, drawing on students’ learning from ICT lessons.

[+] Ask students to make notes of their partner’s answers and write about his / her preferences, using
the third person singular form of the verb. Explain that ich mag becomes er / sie mag as this is an
irregular verb.
6 Was siehst du im Fernsehen? Wie findest du die Fernsehsendungen?
Writing. Students write an email to their German friend about their television likes and dislikes, giving
their opinions of the programme types they mention. They should use the key language box for support

Dice gamble
Students work in groups of four and decide who will play first, second, third and fourth – this choice is
the gamble. The first student throws a die. A number one corresponds to five seconds, number two to
ten seconds and so on (multiples of five). The first student must talk about different programmes and
what he / she thinks about them for that length of time. The other three players throw the die when it is
their turn to talk – they are not allowed to change order.
As the other students are listening, ask them if they can hear any adverbs of frequency, time references
and adjectives being used.

Reading. This activity introduces students to the key language of the unit – talking about more
traditional hobbies. They match up the sentences with the pictures. Encourage students to match the
ones they are sure of first and then to work out the rest by a process of elimination. When going

<GB>Grammatik: Plural forms
This grammar box reminds students that there are several ways of forming the plural in German. Go
through the box with students and ask them to point out the plural nouns in the sentences from exercise
1. Can they tell you or find out the singular form of each of these nouns? You could ask them to do the
same with other plural nouns from this unit, such as television programmes, and then challenge them to
spot the different plural forms that these nouns use. For more on plural forms, see the Student’s Book,
page 198.

The skills box will help prepare students for activity 6. Go through the four stages of how to extend a
simple sentence with the class before giving them another short sentence from exercise 1 to extend.
Ask students to use as many of the stages shown as possible. You could provide them with words or
phrases to add to the sentence or let them suggest their own.

6 Gruppenspiel. Grow – grow – grow.
Writing. Students do this activity in groups. They start by writing one of the example sentences on a
piece of paper or a mini-whiteboard and then pass it round for each student in turn to add to. They
should do this up to six times with each of the example sentences.
7 Gruppenarbeit. Sprecht gemeinsam über das Bild und beantwortet

Four stage rule

prior knowledge to extend this concept into other contexts. Write the following core sentences on the
board for students to extend, using the four stages:
Ich esse Pizza.
Ich spiele Rugby.
Underline the importance of extending students’ productive German from the minimum. Also highlight
the importance of transferring skills and grammatical concepts from the context where they are first
met to other linguistic contexts – skills are not content bound.

The tip box beside exercise 4 will help students to improve their answers. They are encouraged to draw
pictures or jot down a few words to help them speak for a whole minute. Students are reminded to use
intensifiers and to add extra information about their favourite bands as well as their opinions of other
types of music.

Speaking. Students are challenged to speak for one minute about their own music tastes and habits,
answering the questions from exercise 3 to structure their work. Students are allowed to write just five
words (in German) or draw five small pictures to act as prompts for their talk. They should use the key
language box and the skills box to help them with their preparation. They can also use the grammar box
to help them vary their sentences by changing the word order to add emphasis.
<GB>Grammatik: Verb as second idea
This grammar box introduces the concept of verb as second idea in German sentences. Students are

Go through the useful language box on page 19 with students and demonstrate how they might adapt
these sentences for their own speaking.
The Results Plus box on page 19 gives advice on aspects of language which will help students work
towards a grade C.
Ask students to bring in a picture as preparation for their own speaking task. Ideally, the picture should
represent something personal to the student and thereby give a sense of task ownership to facilitate free
discussion. In the discussion, ask some open-ended questions to ensure that students can demonstrate
an ability to adapt their discussion and to respond appropriately to questions.
Students may give a short presentation (one minute maximum) to introduce their picture. After this,
begin the discussion by asking questions about the picture, before extending the conversation into
related areas. A question such as, Warum hast du dieses Bild gewählt? could serve as a good opener
for more able students. It is important to train students to give extended responses and a range of
opinions throughout the discussion.
