In this YouTube video we can find 100 lessons of Slovenian as a foreign language. Each lesson is around 3 minutes long and is ideal for individual learning at levels A1 and A2.
The language instructional activity is suitable for both beginners’ learners of the Slovenian language, as it introduces basic communicational terms. Since the language of instruction is German, a basic knowledge of German is required in order to fully master the material. The video is great for individual language learning, but can also be used for classroom teaching, where the teacher can make learners practice the terms the video offers with additional tasks. Although the emphasis is on vocabulary development, the terms also add some grammatical knowledge. The curriculum improves the reading, the listening comprehension and speaking skills of language learners, but as an additional task, literacy can also be developed.
