The German A Level course aims to foster a love and appreciation not only for the German language but also for film, music and books written in German. We study German as an influential European language and through cultural studies, students’ knowledge of the German language is broadened. We explore a range of viewpoints on issues that are current in today’s world such as sport as a business, human rights and the role of the media.
We also are aiming to set up a link for our A Level students with students in Germany to give that ‘real-life’ practice that develops confidence. It is an exciting and interesting A Level which complements study in either the Sciences or the Arts as it provides students with the opportunities to study abroad later on.
