Bingo cards for use in German language lessons. 34 individual cards for students plus a teacher sheet.

How to play:

Students are each given a card. The teacher calls out numbers between 1 and 90 in German, crossing them off on the teacher sheet as each number is called.

The first winner is the first student to cross of all of the numbers on one horizontal line.

The second winner is the first to cross of all of the numbers on two horizontal lines.

The final winner must cross off every number on the card.

Alternatively, you may play only one game, aiming for a full house – although this may take longer to achieve.
