"Every day I get up and look through the Forbes list of the richest people in America. If I'm not there, I go to work." Robert Orben (American comedy writer ~ 1927)
Planning a career unit for your students ?
Looking for some introductory material to the world of work ?
Our high school students are not usually exposed to the world of business in their foreign language classes, yet most of them will enter the business world upon completion of their studies.
Based on my experiences working in Paris and Cologne, I have put together an overview of various aspects of a typical company and what they do. Students will go from department to department and see what each entails.
Each chapter includes:
* Pertinent vocabulary in German and English,
* An overhead explanation in English of the functions of the department or area involved,
* A set of exercises on certain grammar points using the new business vocabulary,
* An activity or game to further use the business vocabulary in that chapter,
* A BIZ*TIP pointing out cultural differences in business life and life in general in Germany,
* A one-page MINITEST after every two chapters,
* And an answer key to all exercises and MINITESTS.
Please note that the grammar points covered are not taught using these materials.
It is assumed that your students have already learned them and are now going to review and reinforce them using business terminology.
Here are the chapters:
* Accusative case of 'der' and 'ein'; accusative case pronouns
* Adjective endings in the nominative, dative, and accusative cases after 'der' and 'der' words
* Future tense with werden , accusative case prepositions
* Modal verbs in the present tense
* Dative case pronouns, gefallen + DATIV
* das Imperfekt of regular verbs plus haben and sein, da- and wo- compounds
* Conjunctions denn and weil, two-way prepositions
* Separable prefix verbs im Präsens and im Perfekt
* Command forms, was für ein + AKKUSATIV
Die Wareneingangs- und Versandabteilung
* Das Perfekt (both forms) of modal verbs, compound nouns.
These materials are suitable for high school students towards the end of German 2 or in German 3 or above or can be used as an easy introduction to Business German for lower level language students on the college level as well.
All items are ready-to-use to make your job easy. (150 pages)
