Course description

The two year course will build on GCSE German enabling students to develop their language skills and gain a deeper cultural understanding of the countries where German is spoken. A wide variety of topics will be studied under the broader headings of travel and exploration, diversity and difference, contemporary youth culture and the modern Germany from 1989 onwards.

Course content

In addition to this, students will study some selected German literature and films.
