geni@l klick A1: DVD & Worksheet

Suited for the 1st Year and up: In the introductory video segment below from the new genial klick DVD, students form a video group—"Die Medien-AG"—and start producing video clips, first introducing themselves, then interviewing others, including their teacher. The various scenarios in the video are designed to encourage students to write scripts and produce their own similar videos: describing my bedroom, the route I take to school, making plans with a friend on the phone, asking parents' permission to attend a concert, a portrait of my school, a scene at a birthday party. Short comprehension exercises accompany each segment and also serve to introduce useful vocabulary.
