This news story helped my year 10 class to improve their German today.
I've been trying to get them to use a variety of intensifiers and adjectives to describe people and thought it'd be a good idea to show them the story and then get them to come up with as many different ways of describing her as they could.
The title was: Wie dumm ist sie? (How stupid is she?)
The nicer students (the girls) came up with phrases like
ziemlich ungeschickt (quite clumsy)
and the boys came up with the likes of
total verrückt (totally crazy).
An interesting and amusing way to get students to use some really creative vocabulary and they thought it was fun, too.
