This fun German Christmas quiz is sure to be a hit with anyone who likes music. It's great for recapping German Christmas words, music vocabulary and opinion expressions.

There are four main types of question plus a German Christmas trivia question:

  1. What’s the German Christmas song or carol called in English?
  2. Find the missing German word in the song lyrics. 
  3. What’s the correct English translation of the sentence about Christmas music? 
  4. Identify the instrument, in German, from the picture.

Multiple-choice options are provided for question types 2–4.

Students don't need to know the German songs to be able to answer the questions, but where hearing the music can provide a clue, they have the opportunity to listen to the song on YouTube.
