If you are unfamiliar with the Extr@ Series put out by Discovery Learning, you really have to check these out. Here is the first episode. This is perfect for Level 2 German. Watch the whole series with your class! Note: There are a few innuendos and situations that might not be appropriate for younger grades but those scenes can be skipped easily. Preview these and see what your class thinks!

Here is another one: Deutsch Plus; a BBC German course. Not terribly exciting, but very comprehensible for 2nd year students.

I also recommend the delightful series called the Lernen to Talk Show. Follow the adventures of a German student as he goes from halting German to fluency over the course of a year. He recorded an interview each week. Here is a video from his 3rd week in Germany.

I have purchased many DVDs over the years and have created worksheets for students to get some extra credit in my class. You are welcome to use any of these worksheets as you wish. Click on the picture to get the worksheet.
