Level 3 German

Course Description

Year 13 German

What is German?

Germany is a country with a long and rich heritage and is the geographic and cultural centre of Europe. The German language is closely related to English and is more similar to it than to any other language. There are 100 million German speakers throughout Europe, from Austria to Switzerland, and it is also a popular language in New Zealand. There are numerous close links between New Zealand and Germany through trade, tourism and exchanges, which makes knowledge of the German language and people an incredibly useful skill across many areas.

What this course involves

This course advances students’ linguistic development and German language skills. It challenges them to read, write and speak German in unfamiliar contexts and using more complex language, which broadens their vocabulary, grammatical and written abilities.

The focus is built around various themes that explore different aspects of German culture, its people and events. Students are challenged to express their thoughts and opinions on topics, including traditional stories, media and the creative arts, in German as much as possible.

New Zealand Scholarship exams are designed to extend very high-achieving Level 3 students. Those who wish to enter the New Zealand Scholarship exam in this subject must discuss this option with their Te Kura subject teacher.
