Course description


Course content

German Study the most widely spoken language in Europe at a higher level. Gain confidence and develop into a more rounded individual by understanding and enjoying other cultures. Ensure a strong and balanced combination of subjects across the curriculum. Develop a skill that will extend career opportunities in many fields including business, engineering, marketing, science, tourism, the media and technology. Be able to communicate with people all over the world. Raise the standard of a students own language and be able to learn other languages more quickly. Spend a period of time in the future studying, living or working abroad. Master an academic discipline which strengthens communication skills, thinking skills and memory skills. In the course, themes of interest to young people will be studied such as travel, leisure, sport, fashion, and entertainment. In addition, the course will develop the students awareness of social issues such as health, young peoples problems, education, racism, equal opportunities and moral and political questions. Varied learning methods are used and because there is an emphasis on oral work, students will experience weekly sessions with a language assistant as well as use current media materials. An integral part of studying a foreign language is visiting the country. Visits will be organised to Strasbourg, Freiburg and the Blackforest. There will be an opportunity to attend extra-curricular activities such as the film club and assisting younger pupils in the language lessons. For students wishing to study German afresh, a GCSE qualification is not required, however students must be keen and committed linguists.
