This beginner German reading is written as a postcard from one friend on vacation in Spain with his family to another friend back home in Germany. The reading includes uses of the present and perfect tenses.
The reading is followed by four comprehension questions and a full glossary of new vocabulary. They can pretend they are in some German-speaking destination and research the local attractions there.
Activity idea: have students write a 'postcard' for homework as a writing exercise.
