Conversation Class Lesson Summary

Language Resident Name: Mirja Schoderer

Day and Date: Wednesday , 4/15/15

Language and Level (intermediate or advanced class): German intermediate

Class theme/topics discussed: Sentence structure

Goal of the class: repeat sentence structure

How did you structure the class?

Ice Breaker: talk about the rest of the week and their plans for the weekend

Activity One: review sentence structure with an example sentence 

Activity Two: I had prepared cards with different words and sentence parts on them and they had put them in as many different combinations as possible

Activity Three: I gave them postcards, some of them my own from around the US, some of them leftover from the Open House with German cities and asked them to write a fake postcard, starting every sentence with a different part of a sentence


What technology, media or props did you use? (internet resources, playmobiles, handouts, etc.)

Printed cards, postcards, whiteboard 

What worked well in this class? What did not work? 

It was a great class! They really enjoyed the game and the postcards and I feel that after the rather dry grammar part of our last class, this was the perfect end to this grammar unit

How could this class be improved/ modified?
