Modern Foreign Languages - German
Herzlich willkommen - welcome to German!
Two hundred pupils in 2022-3 will begin or continue their exciting journey in learning German – the most widely spoken language in Europe, a sister language to English and a language in high demand for business and tourism in particular.
In lessons we use a range of skills every lesson - listening, speaking, reading and writing. Particularly in the early stages of German, we ensure that students are able to read aloud and pronounce German with reasonable accuracy in order to facilitate later progress in speaking and listening and enable pupils to benefit from the many crossovers in English and German vocabulary.
We use a range of online resources to support class- and homework; there is a list of useful websites below and on the last page of the Key Stage 3 Language Guide which is available to all the relevant pupils electronically. We use the Stimmt range of textbooks. Pupils have electronic access to all the class resources via the College’s CATalogue.
