Our German Listening Practice video is perfect for GCSE German and CEFR A2 who want to develop their German listening skills with authentic listening materials, why not share with your students as homework or use in lessons to save you time?
Having taught German in secondary schools, I have noticed a distinct lack of useful 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. Whilst they are free, I have paid for the content to be created and it has taken time to edit the video and write this post. If you find it useful, please do consider
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. Although I have created it for my GCSE German students as listening practice, use it with German students at KS3 or KS4, Scottish National 4, as well as CEFR A2.
What does this German listening practice video clip about ‘Hausarbeit’ contain?
This blog post and authentic audio-visual German listening clip is on the topic of Hausarbeit. You will hear all about the topic of cleaning from Franziska, a native German speaker. She is in her messy bedroom and in the video clip, you will see the following:
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 some useful activities that German students can do whilst listening to the audio clip.
MAIN CLIP: Franziska was born and raised in Germany and currently lives in Austria.
- Firstly, she introduces the topic with the words: ‘aufräumen’ and ‘putzen’
- Then we see her messy bedroom and she explains the tasks she has to do
- She continues to mention the equipment she needs to carry out these tasks
- Like magic, Franziska cleans up and explains what she has done
- Before moving on to explain what housework is remaining
- Finally, she tries to convince us why ‘Hausarbeit’ is something positive
This video not only offers a great opportunity to learn more about the topic of housework 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:
