This is a sample task for second semester German students that promotes listening and speaking skills. I created this task in compliance with Rod Ellis’ definition of a task and within the greater context of task-based language teaching. Note: I have translated the worksheet into English, so it can be understood by non-German speakers visiting this website as well.

On this site, you will find the following:

(1) A PowerPoint with task input and task directions that I would give to my students.

(2) A paper-based handout that will guide the students during their task work.

(3) A write up describing the task.
