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.
