with free worksheet and transcript
Are you a German learner or teacher in need of some listening practice on the topic of das deutsche Schulsystem? If you need some help with listening or topic vocabulary, questions and responses on the German school system, you’re in the right place!
Since listening is a key communication tool in language learning, practise and hone it regularly.
Firstly, I give my GCSE German and iGCSE German students a list of 8 excellent websites and links to practise their listening skills that they should access throughout the course. Sometimes, I set something from one of them as homework, otherwise, students use them independently. 2,000 people have downloaded it so far
Secondly and in addition to that, I have also created a number of videos with native speakers which focus on listening. More specifically, the topics are on the key topics studied in the GCSE German and iGCSE German courses, such as das deutsche Schulsystem which is what this post is all about.
