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.

Mein Hund hat meine Hausaufgaben gegessen (my dog has eaten my homework) is an excuse as old as time! In this lesson, students will receive the chance to practise the past and present tenses and cover some key classroom language and school-related vocabulary. After going through the vocabulary students will then practise speaking to further their 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.
