After a nice week’s holiday, it was a pleasure to see the usual boys back to the German session with their infectious enthusiasm! We looked at some of my old football memorabilia from a previous lifetime and covered some important football vocab:

This week (Wed 7th March) we started a quiz about Germany. Quiz sheets to be handed in next week to claim a prize on the final week! The plan for the next 3 lunchtimes is to enjoy the film “Das Wunder von Bern” (The Miracle of Bern) and on the final Wednesday we will have a lunchtime German party 🙂 Come and join us!

We also checked out the back of our homework diaries to find some useful phrases and numbers.

Aaaaand we went on a couple of websites:
BBC Languages German  has some really good stuff, including “A  fan in Germany” which has some football phrases that are worth a look, and a comedian talking about “What’s so funny about German?”

Guten Morgen, Guten Tag  with JC and Kaiser (the dog) introducing some everyday German expressions in a really easy-to-remember way.

Have fun exploring lads, more next Wednesday!

Bis dann,

Miss Ritchie / Mr Docherty
