Das Projekt

In the project for Unit 7 you will be talking about shopping experiences. Pick four different kinds of stores (Geschäfte) or 4 departments (Abteilungen) of a department store (Kaufhaus), and tell about your purchases, with a picture and at least six German sentences for each. You might want to compare what you buy with things you choose not to buy and/or say what matches other things you have. You might also say how you pay for the items. The items can be clothing, books, jewelry, shoes, groceries, or anything else you can talk about. If you wish, you may write one or more of the descriptions as a dialog involving a sales person. You will get the most points by using as much different vocabulary as you can. This project will also have a speaking component: you are to record your paragraphs for two of the four stores.

Keep the following in mind as you work on the project:

  • Four different types of stores or departments within a store
  • Six German sentences about each one
  • A picture that matches your written description
  • Use as much different vocabulary as you can
  • Submit a recording of two of the descriptions

  2. Detailed outline (5 Points)
  3. Rough draft (10 points)
