German Listening Practice | A2 – Shopping in Towns with Free Worksheet
Perfect German Listening Practice On Theme Of: Shopping & Town
For GCSE German and CEFR A2 German Learners with Free Worksheet and Transcript
This German Listening Practice video is ideal for GCSE German and CEFR A2 who want to develop their German listening skills with authentic listening materials.
Having taught the language in secondary schools, I have noticed a distinct lack of German listening practice material. So, I have developed a selection of audio-visual clips for students and teachers to use, with or without the video. There are accompanying worksheets and transcripts available for download below too.
Who is this German listening practice for?
This free audio-visual German listening clip for both students and teachers is an ideal resource for advanced beginner / pre-intermediate German learners. I have primarily created it for GCSE German students for listening practice. However, it is ideal for all German students at KS3 or KS4, Scottish National 4, as well as CEFR A2. I’d recommend teachers of all these students use this clip to support their listening practice in German lessons!
What does this practice video clip about ‘Shopping’ contain?
This blog post and authentic audio-visual German listening clip is on the topic of shopping with some elements of town vocabulary. You will hear all about shopping from a native German speaker named Franziska. She discusses the art of shopping, the difference between Einkaufen and Shoppen, as well as talking about how shopping has evolved over the centuries. You will hear the names of different types of stores, as well as brand names typical to Germany and Austria. Franziska has filmed in three locations in her town in Austria in the hope of bringing a bit of Germany into your homes and classrooms.
INTRODUCTION: In this video, you will have a short introduction from Sabina (me). I am an experienced and qualified secondary German teacher and tutor with excellent results. I give a brief summary of the video content and suggest five activities that German students can do whilst listening to the audio clip.
MAIN CLIP: Franziska who was born and raised in Germany and currently lives in Austria talks about shopping.
- Firstly, she explains the difference between ‘shoppen’ and ‘einkaufen’
- Then shows us an old shopping street, a modern shopping area, as well as a shopping centre.
- Franziska discusses how shopping has developed over the years
- Continuing to mention types of shops in German
- Finally mentioning shop brands that are commonly found in German speaking countries.
This video not only offers a great opportunity to learn more about the topic of shopping through listening practice, it also enables GCSE, advanced beginners, pre-intermediate German students and CEFR A2 students to discover new verbs, nouns and adjectives too. Check it out here:
