German from home during 9th week of school closure

Dear students,

I trust this message finds you well. We are now in our ninth week of online learning. A massive well done to all those students who have kept in touch and who have sent in their work on a regular basis! 🙂 With regards to those few students, who have never contacted me, I tell them that it is never too late to start again. 🙂 If you need my help, just send me an e-mail on and I’ll guide you step by step, just as I did with your classmates.


Year 9

Last week we started off our new chapter Unterwegs in der Stadt (Out and About) by revising shops and other buildings found in our hometown. You also had to write about various activities that you can pursue in your city/village. This week we are moving on to Kleidung (clothes). We will revise the basic clothing items, learn an important grammar rule (Akkusativ) and listen to interviews with German teenagers about their favourite clothes. It is of utmost importance that you watch the recorded video with my explanation before you start your HW. For this week you need to download the following (the first three are reference material & the last three are HW tasks):

  1. Video: Yr9 – 18.05.20 (explanation)
  2. Kleidung (notes with pictures)
  3. Adjektivendungen im Akkusativ (notes)
  4. Adjektivendungen (HW)
  5. Hören: Interview mit Julia (HW)
  6. Mein liebtes Kleidungsstück (HW)


Year 10

Gesund leben (healthy living) is our next chapter. This week we are revising the parts of the body in German, but our main focus will be that on expressions and phrases related to illnesses and pain. How do we explain to our doctor how we are feeling in German? What is the doctor’s advice? In my recorded video, specifically in the introduction, I make reference to the term Heilmethoden (healing methods). Perhaps I did not elaborate much on this. Different Heilmethoden could be Medizin & Antibiotika (medicine & antibiotics), Naturheilmittel (natural remedies), Meditation & Yoga, Akupunktur (acupuncture), Aromatherapie (aromatheraphy) and Bewegung und Sport (keeping fit). I also encouraged you to have a look at the youtube video “Krank sein” found on the Teleskola website. I downloaded it for you. For this week you need the following material:

  1. Video: Yr 10 – 18.05.20 (explanation)
  2. Beim Arzt (notes)
  3. Youtube video: krank sein (video with notes)
  4. Einleitung: Introduction (HW)
  5. Krank sein (HW)
  6. Husten und Schnupfen (HW)


Hope you have a positive week ahead.

Kind regards,

M. Abela Bugeja
