German | Reading | Immigration

This article on Germany's need for immigrant workers appears on the Deutsche Weller site (Germany's international broadcaster) and an English summary of it is also available on the site. Both would make good reading material for A2 students working on the topic of immigration.

Teaching ideas

  • Students could read the German version of the article, noting any figures or dates and what they represent.
  • They could then read the English summary of the same article, checking to see which of the details they had correctly interpreted.
