German A Level at The Knights Templar School

Course description

The ability to speak a foreign language is becoming increasingly important in all areas of life – work, leisure and general culture. It is a highly regarded qualification by employers and Higher Education institutions alike. A modern language complements all other subjects.

You will continue to practise the four key skills of listening, speaking, reading and writing and increasingly this will be within the context of the cultures of the language you are studying. Topics covered at AS will include media, leisure and tourism, the world of work, teenage issues and many others.

At A2 you will study more in-depth topics such as crime, the environment, social issues such as discrimination, unemployment and many others. You should be prepared to contribute greatly to lessons by offering your ideas and opinions and you should have an interest in seeing how language works.

Hopefully, you will have the opportunity to visit Germany during the course of your A Level studies. 

Entry requirements

A minimum of 5 GCSEs at grade C or above, including English and Maths, for a full level 3 programme.

Students are expected to have gained a B grade at GCSE in German.
