GERMAN - delivered at St Thomas Aquinas School at St Thomas Aquinas Catholic School

Course description

AIM OF THE COURSE

German A Level provides an engaging and exciting opportunity for students to build on their previous study of German. Students will be able to develop their linguistic knowledge and cultural understanding of the countries/communities where the language is spoken. An opportunity to study literature and film will allow students to undertake a deeper analysis of language structures and increase their cultural awareness as part of an integrated approach to language learning. A strong focus is placed on building students' confidence and fluency in spoken German using relevant and topical themes. The requirement to research an area of personal interest related to the country/communities where German is spoken will enhance students' cultural appreciation and enable them to gain a greater awareness of intercultural differences.
