If you ever had to teach this part of the exam you may have spent endless hours trying to find a picture with good enough content related to the topics so it can be described by the students. Furthermore, at some point, you might have even felt so frustrated that you even considered becoming a photographer and staging the whole thing but it can be way more simple than that.
I was looking for some photos for the What’s in the photo bit of the Spanish GCSE speaking exam and I’ve found this one that could be great for the students of German (*Not that I teach German but just in case it is useful for someone else).
To be more specific: Topic 1 Identity and culture > Technology in everyday life.
What’s on the picture?
I was lucky enough to find a chronicle I can relate to most of the topics covered in the AQA A2 exam. It took me some time until I found the perfect story for my students’ revision time.
It is some info about a place called Auroville (in India) and the idea of a place with no official religion, currency and a very particular form of government seems fascinating to me and fortunately my students liked it too so feel free to have a look and use it in your lessons if you find it useful.
