NCEA Level 3 German

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Ms C. Currie

13 German

In this course the skills practised and tested, as in the past, are listening, speaking, reading and writing.

Emphasis is on expanding vocabulary and grammar so that students are able to use more fluent German and to discuss topical issues relevant to German society today. World topics such as environment issues, human rights and immigration are covered.

Also culture is incorporated into the programme, and at this level authentic and up-to-date sources such as news from the internet are used.

To gain further insight into German history and culture, some literacy texts are studied, as well as German films and contemporary songs.

Students are encouraged to sit the European Framework examinations (B1, B2) which are subsidised by the Goethe-Institut and take place at the end of Term 3.
