Example 1: Survey form and and description of car

Welches auto hast du?

Was für ein Auto ist es? Welche Farbe hat es? Wie schnell ist es? Wie alt ist es? Wie umweltfreundlich ist es? Wie teuer ist es? Woher kommt es?

After completing the survey, students use what they have learnt to create a presentation featuring their imaginary car.

Mein Auto

  • Mein Auto ist blitzschnell und knallrot.
  • Es kommt aus Deutschland, aber das Lenkrad ist rechts.
  • Es ist modern, umweltfreundlich und braucht wenig Benzin.
  • Mein Auto kostet etwa dreihundertfünzigtausend Dollar.
