German Transition Videos will keep your German classes on task and in the target language. This video will give you a glimpse into all 21 videos that can be purchased individually or in a discounted bundle.
All of the backgrounds on the actual videos were changed to include the flags and remove the alphabet chart after this video was produced.
Please read the words to the songs to make sure you are comfortable with the lyrics. The words are in the supporting document download.
Please read the songs carefully – I have German teachers disagreeing with one another about what to use and I don’t want to disappoint you and have you mark down the quality of the video because you disagree with the word choice. By sharing the lyrics here I hope to avoid that.
When in doubt, I went with a native speaker who moved here when she married and who has taught German for over 25 years.
So if you don’t like the word choice in a particular video, than by all means do not purchase that particular one. If you don’t like the font because it is all capitals and you only want to show your students lower-case fonts to help them learn nouns, then please don’t choose these videos.
But if you and your students love singing in German, go for it! You will be rewarded with a steady stream of endorphins and German expressions falling out of theirs mouths so quickly that it defies typical Comprehensible Input theories about output!
