What will I Learn?

Our aim is to promote a love of language learning and an appreciation of different cultures. German is introduced as an optional subject in Year 9, and is learnt ab initio (from the beginning).

Year 9

In Year 9, we follow the new Zoom Deutsch course to prepare our pupils for GCSE from the beginning. The four skills of Listening, Speaking, Reading and Writing are developed through a range of activities and resources


Pupils will already be familiar with some of the topics covered at GCSE and they will learn to discuss new themes such as German identity and culture; local, national, international and global areas of interest; current and future study and employment. Having already gained a good understanding of grammar, pupils will learn to communicate effectively when speaking and writing. For GCSE we follow the AQA specification. There will be examinations for Listening, Reading, Speaking and Writing.
