Functional skills are embedded throughout the lesson. Written and verbal language be the focus for the language. Pair work and rote learning will support the embedding of language skills. The activities and vocabulary handouts are written in both English and German. Audio-visual aspects will be covered by using listening, visual help (PowerPoint presentation, MP3 files) and repetition Numeracy is covered by asking learners to work in pairs and role play person 1 or person 2 as well as using basic maths. The attempt is to enlarge the horizon of students that German culture and diversity is reflected in the relations between Britain and Germany, similarities and differences in daily life and attitudes (i.e. formal vs informal working styles in both societies) Learning the German language would help to decrease barriers in understanding between British and German societies.
