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.

How do you say, "at the moment, I'm cooking in the kitchen" in German? If you answered, "Im Moment koche ich in der Küche" then you are correct!

In this lesson, students will revise key routine phrases using flashcards, learn how to easily switch between past and present tense, and construct simple sentences using a sentence builder. Students will also get the opportunity to practice their speaking skills with a conversation in German. This is a fantastic class for German students to quickly ramp up their vocabulary and strengthen their written and spoken German.
