Increase native language exposure in your B.1 or higher German level! This video guide accompanies a German news Youtube video by MrWissen2go. The video is about 16 minutes long. I like to turn on the captions to allow students to both listen and read along.
The guides start out with a key vocabulary section to build vocabulary. I encourage my student to really commit themselves to listening and focus on understanding wath they can. I further explain to them that it is OK not to understand every word, the goal of the activity is to improve and grow our ability to understand native paced language and that is going to take practice.
This particular guide supports use of the German subjunctive case.
"Adolf Hitler hat sich am 30. April 1945 das Leben genommen. Feige entzog er sich damit seiner Verantwortung für Kriegstreiberei und Massenmord. Was aber wäre gewesen, wenn er schon viel früher gestorben wäre? Welchen Einfluss hätte das auf die Geschichte gehabt? Darum geht es in diesem Video."
Great as a lesson plan, sub plan, flipped classroom activity, in class assignment or homework.
