Mastering the Basics – German Sweet Food


This 13-page workbook (including answers) is designed to help you teach and/or learn some sweet food items in German, including typical German cakes and desserts.

It includes:

  • Vocabulary list (with a sound file to help with pronunciation)
  • Reading, listening, translations and a writing task to practise the vocabulary
Categories: , ,


The booklet has been created with absolute beginners in mind, and is particularly aimed at those who may have a lower level of English literacy. The tasks are simple, clear and require little language knowledge above and beyond the key vocabulary (sweet food). The pictures are attractive photos, rather than babyish clipart or cartoons, as I have found this to be more appealing to secondary school pupils, whatever their age and ability levels.

It could be used to help newcomers catch up, for extra scaffolding with SEND pupils or cover work when the cover teacher has no knowledge of the language and needs something quick and easy (with answers provided)!
