Lieber freiwillig eine Ehrenrunde als Stress mit G8 - Textdiskussion eines Artikels aus der 'Frankfurter Rundschau' (German - intermediate/advanced).

This exercise is based on an article of the 'Frankfurter Rundschau' which is freely available on the internet (link provided in document). Reading the article/looking up unknown vocabulary can be given as homework, so that the class time can focus on the discussion itself. The questions should be used as prompts for discussion (first in pairs/followed by a class discussion). Depending on the confidence/ability of students, it might be helpful to give them 5-10 minutes to think about the questions and make some bullet points before starting the discussion.

Reiseplanung (Intermediate German).

In this exercise students plan a short trip through Germany in small groups, which they then present to the other students in class. As such, it is very much a research and speaking exercise. It was written to be used with laptops/computers and internet access available during class time. However, the research part of the exercise could also be given as homework and it could then be used in a more traditional setup.
