This could be used initially as a cultural element to introduce new learners of German to the country’s capital city. From a grammar perspective pupils could be introduced to basic concepts such as nouns and definite articles to prompt further discussion about the idea of gendered nouns (i.e. words classified as masculine, feminine or neuter). Pupils could be asked if they know of any other languages that also have gendered nouns. Does this occur in English?
