My German Club kids are asking to learn some basic phrases. So after our Story Listening lesson, I’ll be introducing some conversational vocabulary. We are going to start with greetings (Begrüßungen).
You can always say Hallo! for hello or Tschüss! for goodbye. But then you can get more specific.
- Guten Morgen – good morning
- Guten Tag – good day
- Guten Abend – good evening
- Gute Nacht – good night
- Auf Wiedersehen – goodbye (until we see each other again)
I made some word posters to introduce the vocab. There are posters with words, pictures only, and words only. Download the PDF for FREE here: Greetings Posters GitA
I also made some simple worksheets to go with the posters.
- match the greeting to the picture
- write the greeting under the picture
- word scramble
- word search
The PDF also has all of the solutions to the activities. You can download the PDF for FREE here: Greetings Arbeitsblätter GitA
And here is what they look like (click on the image to see a larger version):
