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.

Learning and understanding the past tense in a foreign language can be challenging! In this lesson, students will look at examples of the past tense in German and practice forming simple, accurate sentences using a sentence builder, flashcard practice and an interactive conversation. There is no learning of tables and missing verb exercises, just snappy spoken exercises. This class is aimed at students in Years 9 - 11 and is great for revising.
