Sign up now for our next online seminar for primary teachers on Tuesday, 15 September 2020.

In order to produce simple phrases from the get-go, learners of German need to be familiar with a variety of conjugation patterns, articles and endings, as well as feeling confident with the rules of word order. Knowing the rules and the grammar terminology becomes essential further down the line when students start creating and analysing more complex structures and developing their language further. It is therefore crucial that the teaching of syntax and grammar happens from the very start. In this online seminar we will look at fun and meaningful ways to present and practise grammar and syntax. We will present a variety of cooperative games and whole class activities which can be easily adapted to different groups.

Christiane Guenther has been a lecturer at Swansea University since 2011.
