Very comprehensive coverage of topic areas. Authentic listening materials for use in classroom. C Humphries, German Teacher & Independent Reviewer

Brilliant learning structure to support and engage students who find listening a challenge:

  1. Extensive pre-listening activities prepare students and build their confidence
  2. Monologue listening activity provides a chance to ‘tune in’
  3. Dialogue listening activity practises listening skills in a natural context
  4. Post-listening writing or speaking activities consolidate learning and build on the topic, ensuring students feel well-prepared to tackle it in future.

Written by an experienced teacher who is also a native speaker, the activities are designed for use in class, cutting teacher preparation time and giving valuable listening support. Native speaker recordings build students’ pronunciation skills.

It truly is a comprehensive resource. All the major topics are covered and any teacher would be spoilt for choice. ...an excellent tool for teachers of German. It covers all the main topic areas that are tested in exams. The material covers a wide range of vocabulary, grammar points, types of questioning and task types. This resource will also provide students with a wealth of knowledge about the culture of Germany. The author clearly has an understanding of the National 5 course in Scotland and this is evident by the choice of topics, grammar points and questioning. S Bremner, MFL Teacher & Independent Reviewer
