I am totally agreed with Salivia_Baker's findings, those are my understandings as well.

Those words in the video are not in the correct context and it is misleading.

I agree with Ann Adams.

Student = student in collage or university. in School it's Schüler (der Schüler or male student, die Schülerin for female student and die schüler for plural)

Homeowork = more common is Hausaufgaben.

Notebook is NOT notebook. if you use notebook in German it's a Laptop. A notebook is either das Notizbuch or for school it's das Heft (or Das Schulheft)

Die Wandtafel = it's more commeon to say die Tafel

Das Examen = it's only used for really important exams like the Staatsexamen (a university degree), you either say die Klausur (written) or die Prüfung (general term)

class = it can mean two things: die Klasse or der Unterricht. Judging by the picture it should be Der Unterreicht (math class = Mathematikunterricht)

I appreciate the addition of these words to my German vocabulary, but I found some of the pictures confusing. When I took the test at the end, I found that I didn't always connect the picture to the word. For example, "class" shows a teacher at the blackboard. Since "teacher" and "blackboard" are also words in the lesson, I had to take a second to figure out what word I was expected to use. I guess my brain can't memorize vocabulary and pictures at the same time. If the English word would have been on the pictures in the test, I would have done much better. Needless to say, I am still at the Newbie level of study, so maybe that added to my difficulty.

The pictures are quite nice, but the vocabulary you have chosen to use is in part incorrect and quite anglicized. Example: you show a picture of a woman teacher and call her 'der Lehrer'. You show a young girl in a classroom and call her 'der Student'. That term refers to college students; students in school should be called 'Schüler'. Why do you use the word 'Notebook' when you could use the perfectly acceptable word 'das Heft'? 'Hausarbeit' is either housework or a rather formal research paper, the better term for your purpose would be 'Hausaufgaben'. That's as far as I got with the video, since, frankly, I cannot recommend it to my students (Schüler) as it is. Again, great pictures, nice music, pedagogically appealing. Just do something about the language you're trying to teach.
