Partner Work Competition
Students sign up for the Partnerarbeit contest according to their level of German. This is a speaking/drawing contest. Two students from the same level and same school participate together. One student describes the picture, the other student draws a picture based on what he/she hears. Both students speak with each other exclusively in German. The judges listen to the students speaking and determine if students used English - in that case, drawing does not qualify.
Judges rate students based upon the accuracy of details and not on their artistic ability. The more details students have on their drawing, the more chances for them to win this competition.
