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.

In this lesson students will see how the present and past tenses can be easily combined to talk about routine activities without worrying about complex grammar exercises. We will revise key routine phrases using flashcards and a sentence builder and then have a conversation in German.  

This is a fantastic class for German students to quickly ramp up their vocabulary with a focus on the tenses to develop and strengthen their written and spoken German.
