Downloads for German Teachers

Hilfe - LehrerinThe handouts below are provided in PDF form and sometimes as Word documents.

The PDF files look exactly as they were meant to look; the formatting of the Word documents will  change on your computer, but you will be able to edit them if you wish. This option could be useful for teachers who would like to change the English phrasing into another language. 

Please leave a comment if a link fails and I shall be happy to fix it up.

Some handouts have an „easy“ option and a „harder“ option. In this case, the handouts are similar, but less confident students can choose the more straightforward version; for instance, the one with words provided to fill the gaps. Conversely, stronger students can choose the more challenging version, where they have to provide the words themselves – or complete a slightly more difficult task.

More handouts will be added soon.

Others are scattered around the blog and may also be found at the Podbean: .
