      Have you incorporated Herbert Grönemeyer’s song Currywurst?

        I was very excited to see this started. I’m wondering where we are with this unit. I’m happy to jump in and help, but would hate to recreate something that someone else is already working on.

          Christie – I’ll get the unit downloads on here this week. You see any typos to fix before I finalize?

            Hallo Kara,
            This is an amazing unit! Thanks for sharing it. I just noticed a few mistakes on the review cards. The words Apfelstrudel, Selter and Deutsch are missspelled.

          • Kara Parker

            My apologies for taking so long. Errors are fixed!

    Antonia, have you taught this unit yet?

    I used this video about Döner as a listening activity after we had reviewed old food vocabulary and added some new. It’s critical that you stop it before 6:05. You wouldn’t want to explain the rest to a parent or administrator!

      Ha! This was a good laugh! I’ve done the same. 🙂
