Key Info

  • Duration: 03:04
  • How to talk about where you live. People talk about their house or flat and its location before giving their address. We then see the addresses written on an envelope, which shows how the address is written in Germany including the Postleitzahl. A survey is then conducted asking where people live and where it is; North, South, East, West or central.
  • Subject:



    House and Home

  • Keywords: address, flat, house, compass points, North, South, East, West, Centre, Adresse, Wohnung, Haus
Ideas for use in class
  • The first part of the clip would make a good introduction to the topic of saying where you live, as pupils are given an example of how the address is written in German. They could be given the task of working out how the address differs from an English address (house number after the street name) or they could make a note of the street name and number for each of the characters. As a follow up, pupils could write addresses on a postcard similar to those shown in the clip. The second part of the clip would be good for introducing a class survey about where you live. Students could make a note of how many people live in houses and how many live in flats. They could conduct a similar survey themselves afterwards.
