GERMAN at Langley Grammar School

Course description

The course aims to develop students’ fluency in the four skill areas of listening, reading, speaking and writing. The four topic areas at AS level are:

 Youth culture and concerns

 Lifestyle: health and fitness

 The world around us: travel, tourism and environmental issues

 Education and Employment.

For A2 there are 3 further topic areas:

 Customs, traditions, beliefs and religions

 National and international events: past, present and future

 Literature and the arts

Within these broad topic areas there is considerable flexibility to discuss a range of issues, depending on students’ own interests, or current events in German speaking countries. Students will spend half an hour a week with the language assistant to develop their oral fluency and confidence, and there is the opportunity to do a week’s work experience in Germany.

Entry requirements

Students will need to have gained a B or above at GCSE. Those with a lower grade tend to find the course extremely demanding.
