To encourage students to practise reading the programme titles and descriptions, ask them to browse the listings on the Tivi Mediathek page to find the best programme for the following people (possible answers in brackets).

  • Skateboarders (Pur)
  • Animal lovers (Haustiercamp)
  • Watersports fanatics (Alien Surfgirls)
  • Someone interested in world affairs (Logo)
  • Someone into science (Checkpoint)
  • Fans of Pippi Longstocking (Astrid Lindgren)

As a homework task, you could ask students to choose one short programme to watch. Ask them to write a short summary of what they understood, what the programme was about and their opinion of it.
