Entry Recommendations:

Students are expected to have at least 3 Achievement Standards (1 must be external) in NCEA Level 2 German or discuss their suitability with TIC German.

Course Outline:

Students, some of whom will go on to university study, take on more responsibility in monitoring their own progress. Speaking in German as much as possible will be encouraged. Visiting German students give great opportunity for this. Students have access to a variety of departmental and on-line resources.

Language topics are chosen according to the students' interests, the work being based on Level 7 and 8 of the Learning Languages Curriculum.

Where Does It Lead:

Having done German to this level, students should be able to communicate with people from German speaking countries, with an appreciation of other cultures. All language study develops the ability to think clearly and to write precisely - increasingly important skills in worthwhile careers. Knowledge of a foreign language is essential for some overseas scholarships, and studying German to this level provides opportunities for employment in many industries, including tourism and travel.
