German: Dragon’s Den
Some sample activities from our Dragon’s Den module, which can be purchased separately and also forms part of the full Y9 Scheme of Work. This module prepares pupils to be able to present the benefits of a product of their choice. Pupils look at persuasive language in adverts, company logos and branding, using a variety of adjetives and ‘wow’ words and look at the grammar points of adjectival agreements and superlatives. This is a very popular module, as pupils enjoy learning about the business aspect and seeing how languages can be used in everyday life and the working world.
