German at Prospect School
German at A-level builds on the knowledge and understanding acquired at GCSE. It is a demanding course for those who enjoy learning other languages and who can confidently express themselves both orally and in writing.
German at A-level will allow students to deepen their understanding of life in countries where the language is spoken. It also lends itself perfectly to cross curricular links with many other A-level courses.
Students study technological and social change, looking at the multicultural nature of German-speaking society. They will study highlights of German-speaking artistic culture, including art and architecture, and will learn how Germany’s political landscape was formed. Students will explore the influence of the past on present-day German-speaking communities.
Throughout their studies, they will learn the language in the context of German-speaking countries and the issues and influences which have shaped them. Students will study texts and film and will have the opportunity to carry out independent research on an area of their choice.

An A-level language qualification is a strong asset for careers such as leisure and tourism, marketing, retail, publishing, engineering or translating. Many companies actively seek applicants with language skills. Should you wish to study a language (e.g. Russian, Japanese) at degree level, an A Level in a foreign language is an essential entry requirement.
