Robin Sedman-SmithHost: I currently teach French in a school in Shropshire and am learning Spanish. I lived in Germany for two years, and spent 13 years teaching German in a grammar school where I still work as a boarding tutor.

Today's lesson gives students the chance to practise the past and present tenses and revise or learn for the first time some key classroom language and school-related vocabulary. After going through the vocabulary we are going to get the opportunity to practise our speaking together to further our conversational skills. 

This class is perfect for students of German to practise speaking in different tenses,  with the added opportunity to recap and revise how to construct sentences, which is key in excelling in languages.

Safeguarding reminder:  We know that the safety of your child is of the utmost importance. This is why we use Zoom's Webinar feature to provide our live classes, where by default, your child's webcam and microphone are disabled.
