Language and Section: German advanced

Class theme/topics discussed: Roommates

Goal of the class: vocabulary and general things about finding a place to live and a roommate

Structure of the class (unless you attach your lesson plan below):

I had 3 pairs of students who were looking for a roommate and 3 people who were looking for a room. The pairs had to think about questions they want to ask to the people who want to become their roommates. The people who are looking for a room have to think of questions they want to ask the people who live there.

Then we had roommate interviews. At the end I asked who wants to have whom as a roommate and who would like to live where.

What worked well in this class? What did not work?

Worked very well

How could this class be improved/ modified?


  • You should have as many groups looking for a roommate as people looking for a room
  • Works better for bigger classes
