Town life video

An authentic resource for the classroom

Would you like to show your children what Germany looks like? Then have a look at Komm mit! - Town life in Germany. Please note that this video is intended for primary pupils or beginners in their first year of secondary school.

This film shows different aspects of daily life in Germany and covers the following topics:

  • Public Transport
  • Bakery
  • Butcher’s shop
  • Post Office
  • Primary School
  • Christmas and Easter

A young boy, Ben, introduces his home town, the medieval city of Nuremberg in Bavaria. The narration is in English but the dialogues in the film are in German, spoken by native speakers. At the end of each main topic, there are useful words for the children to repeat.

Please note that the film is not a professional production but a great resource by a primary teacher for primary schools. It was produced by Katja Neubauer from King's School, Rochester and was supported by an Anglo-German Teacher Fellowship grant from the British Council.

The film comes with a resource pack which can be sent to you electronically. This contains suggestions for the classroom and the German dialogues from the film. To order the resource pack, please contact us and mention 'Town Life' in the 'message' field.

We hope you enjoy watching the film with your pupils!
