German A Level at The Billericay School
If you are interested in a career in which you may need to use a language, then a qualification at 'A' level will be essential for further study. Aspects of German life and society studied include new technologies, health and fitness, family and friendship,
environment, crime and politics.
Paper 1: Listening, reading and writing
You will develop your understanding of written and spoken passages from a range of contexts and sources covering topics such as cinema, music, society’s current trends and issues and aspects of political life in the German-speaking world.
Paper 2: Writing
You will develop your written ability and your analytical skills in German, writing about a chosen book or a film.
Paper 3: Speaking
You will research and present on a topic you have chosen and follow this up by discussing it with the examiner. You will build up a wide range of vocabulary to enable you to express yourself proficiently in conversation on other contemporary themes and
B grade in the relevant GCSE in language.
This course is one of the new linear A levels . All examinations will take place at the end
of the course. The AS qualification is completely separate.
Sixth form students have gone on to work for German firms and to study German at university, often in combination with other subjects such as business studies, economics and law. It is widely recognised that such combinations offer excellent
career prospects within an expanding Europe.
