Das ist Deutsch! is designed for non-specialist teachers of foreign languages. The scheme aims to encourage primary-school pupils to enjoy learning German, and to communicate in speech and writing through the acquisition of simple grammar and a variety of vocabulary.
Each of the 18 units has teachers’ notes and photocopiable pupil worksheets. Each unit addresses several learning objectives, allowing for the material to be taught over several lessons or as a whole. Grammar teaching is approached through the context of the unit theme, for example ‘der’/‘die’/‘das’ in the context of household objects and adjectives in the unit about clothes. There is progression through the units, but they can equally be selected for use in a different order, to complement classwork in maths or English, for example.
The ‘Schlüsselwörter – Key Words’ section in the teachers’ notes for each unit contains the language that pupils should learn. Frequent references are made to relevant units elsewhere in the book where the same key language also appears. Additional vocabulary may be required to meet pupils’ particular interests, and some of the activities require the use of a German–English dictionary.
The ‘Activities’ sections are written as suggested lessons and provide readily accessible teaching plans that can be adapted and altered to suit individual needs.
