What you will learn with film 8

At Easter, many German children paint their own Easter eggs.

German parents give new pupils a Tüte (bag of gifts) on their first school day in September.

St Martin's Day is celebrated in November.


Learning the months of the year enables pupils to talk in German about events such as festivities and birthdays.

In this section we see typical German activities for each month, and find out about some traditional German festivals.
