The topics covered reflect the areas of experience of the National Curriculum: My World Holiday and Travel Work and Freetime Young People Today The students will undertake tasks in these contexts: • Meeting, assisting or acting as a host for a German speaking person visiting this country, • Visiting a German speaking country, • Acting as an intermediary, socially or at work, and • Exploring their own interests and issues related to people of their own age. How will I be assessed? Students are assessed in listening, speaking, reading and writing. There are four modules. Modules 1 – 3 combine to make up 50% of the examination marks. The final examination constitutes 50% and covers all topics and all four skills. Students are entered for Foundation or Higher tiers.
