Does Oktoberfest ring a bell? How about a BMW? Or sausages?

From food, events, to globally recognized brands, German culture is widely adopted around the world. By learning the language, you’ll start to become part of this culture as well.

In this course we will explore our immediate environment focusing on teenage life. 

We will discuss the importance of family and friends, find out about how young people in the German-speaking countries enjoy a variety of hobbies as compared to young New Zealanders, and we will learn about the different German school system and talk about what we enjoy at school, and what we would like to change. Year 11 German is a great opportunity to introduce yourself to the rich culture of Germany, as well as discovering its influence in film, music and literature and its connections with New Zealand.

Through this course we will develop the core skills for learning languages: listening, reading, communicating through writing and speaking, and presenting.

We will learn about other cultures and gain skills in perception and awareness. 

By learning a new language, we will also gain a better understanding of our own language.
