C. Translate into English (Higher)
Letztes Jahr bin ich mit meiner Familie nach Kroatien gefahren, wo es schön ist, aber nur wenn
die Sonne scheint! Der Flug hat leider zehn Stunden gedauert. Am ersten Tag haben wir Leute
kennengelernt und danach eine Show gesehen wo ich viel getanzt habe. Meiner Meinung nach,
war es aufregend, aber ermüdend. Alles in allem habe ich viel Spaß im Urlaub gehabt, aber
nächstes Jahr bleibe ich lieber in England.

I like going to Austria because I like going skiing best of all. I always stay in either a youth hostel
or a hotel. Holidays are usually relaxed but last year I went to Athens where we saw the sights
and I took photos and did a city tour. Athens is spectacular and beautiful and I want to go there
again.

Teaching notes
This resource is designed to develop translation skills with a focus on grammatical
accuracy and contains similar tasks to the new GCSE exam questions for all boards. The
resource is differentiated: all students complete the tasks on p.1 and then you can give
Foundation students p.2 while Higher students move straight onto p.3.
Translations below are suggestions only – there may be other possible correct
translations. By using the mark scheme suggested below, students can track their
progress as they practise their translation skills using our other similar worksheets on
different topics.
For Foundation translations (individual sentences), allow two marks per sentence: one
for communicating the key message and one for grammatical accuracy, giving a total out
of 10.
For Higher translations (short paragraphs), the answers are broken into six sections.
Each section can be given one mark for communication and one mark for grammatical
accuracy, to give a total out of 12.
