Sausage challenge for British students
Two English students are given the challenge of phoning the butcher in Dresden to find out about sausages there. They are only allowed to speak German. The girl doesn't want to phone so the boy does and speaks to the cleaner, who doesn't understand him. The cleaner tells him to come to the shop at 11 o'clock. At the shop the butcher describes typical sausage from Dresden and the two students take photos. After their visit they take their film to be developed. The girl gives her name and when they get the photos back they are the wrong ones. The students have to go back and describe the photos to the woman behind the counter.
This is a good way to show typical German culture and could be used as a listening comprehension. It could also be used as a way to show students how to use their German in everyday situations. You could set up some similar situations and get the students to work out what they would say. It would be good for role play practice.
