German at All Saints School
The advanced study of German leads the student into a highly stimulating new world of contemporary issues and ideas as seen from the perspective of the German-speaking countries. Students not only develop fluency across the full range of language skills but also develop their ability to understand and respond to important issues that affect society, at home and abroad. In doing so they foster effective study skills that make a positive contribution to their ‘A’ level courses.
A level German follows a multi-media approach to learning with the newer technologies playing an important role. Up-to-date textual and visual materials combine with a clear progression of language development to ensure that students proficiency is built up in a carefully structured yet ‘stimulating’ way. Students work in a variety of modes, comprising of individual, pair and group work and whole class activities. Whenever appropriate, students are encouraged to take part in events organised by outside agencies and, of course, to spend a period of time in a German-speaking country, for which a variety of possibilities exist. Topics studied during the course range from human-interest items such as the power of the media, attitudes to healthy living and issues around family life to more controversial topics which include the ethical issues linked to scientific technological research and reasons for criminal and anti-social behaviour.
Learning during the course will be enhanced through access to supported study in the new Language Resource Centre. Our language assistants can also provide one-to-one coaching
