PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

"I like good strong words that mean something ..." Louisa May Alcott, author of 'Little Women' (American novelist ~ 1832 - 1888)


Nilpferd.
Himmelstür.
Zwangsjacke.
Speiseaufzug.
Schönheitsfleck.


These are the intriguing kinds of words I use as extra credit on quizzes or tests.


For an extra +2 or +3 points, I ask students to guess at what the word I write on the board means.


I have gleaned these curious words from many German newspapers, magazines, or websites over the years.


I have a list of 70 words for German 2 and 80 different words for German 3.



This is an engaging way to build vocabulary and offer little nuggets to challenge the intellect of our students.


Looking for something novel for your AP students ?

You could use these words as vocabulary builders for richer variety and content.


You get:
1. A list of 70 words for German 2 students
2. A list of 80 words for German 3 or higher students
3. A ready-to-use notebook checklist to keep students organized
4. A way to award Plus-Punkte in competitions for the winning student or team with the form I use.


Want to help your students build their German vocabulary ?


Here's a simple and fun way to do it. Everything is ready-to-use. (10 pages)


* EXPANSION ACTIVITY 1*
Some very charming videos have been done by an American teenager, Sam Walton, while he's living in Germany. His series 'Life In Germany' is done in short segments.

His outlook is refreshing and delightful.

Here's the one on 'English vs. German'.



* EXPANSION ACTIVITY 2*
Some delightful videos have also been done by Andrew Bossom, an Englishman living in Germany. He has a refreshing and fun way of looking at things, such as ~

'How long can a German word get ?'.
