Product Description
"You know, somebody actually complimented me on my driving today. They left a little note on my windscreen that said 'Parking Fine'." Tommy Cooper (British comedian ~ 1921 - 1984)

Everyone has heard of the Autobahn - that German superhighway with no speed limit.

Well, that's not quite true. On certain stretches there is a speed limit and the Modern Marvels documentary on 'The Autobahn' explains that and so much more about this 'the sky's the limit' driving experience.

Included here are:

1. An introductory overhead in English on driving and getting a license in Germany to be shown before viewing

'Modern Marvels ~ The Autobahn'

so that students can better appreciate the film.

2. A handout summary for absent students in case you want to use these as culture questions on a quiz or test.

3. A Film * Fragen sheet with twenty follow-along questions in English that go with the film.

4. A vocabulary list in German and English with parts of the exterior of a car as a homework assignment.

5. A vocabulary list in German and English with parts of the interior of a car as a homework assignment.

6. A 'Mein Traumauto' project with instructions and a rubric.

7. An easy-to-grade multiple-choice quiz on the parts of a car


8. An answer key for the quiz.

These can also be used as enrichment to a topic or as a substitute lesson plan (or emergency lesson plan).

Having students select from multiple choice answers allows

more time for their eyes to stay on the film (and not spend it

looking down writing out answers) and, thus, not miss

important moments in the film.

Here's a nice introduction to this legendary superhighway and driving in Germany. (26 pages)

Some very charming videos have been done by an American teenager during his stay in Germany. Sam Walton has a delightful and refreshing way of looking at 'Life In Germany' - the name of his series.

Here's his video on 'Driving In Germany'.

And here are some tips from Rick Steves on

'Driving In Europe'.

Other delightful videos have been done by Andrew Bossom, an Englishman living in Germany. He also has a refreshing and fun way of looking at things, such as ~

'German Road Signs: An Introduction'


'Are Dashcams Illegal In Germany?'


'There Is A Speed Limit'.

On the topic of cars, one of the smallest cars in the world was BMW's Isetta.

'World's Cutest Car ~ BMW Isetta'.
