Year 10 German
Teacher in Charge: T. Kitchen
- To prepare students for NCEA and to give them an insight into the German culture. Students will also begin planning their possible exchange options.
- Fit in Deutsch A1 exam.
- The course covers all four language skills of listening, speaking, reading and writing.
- Topics covered include: introductions, my class, pets, the school day, hobbies, family and shopping. All of these are taught within the framework of cultural studies.
- Contemporary German Music and Film are also used during the course.
Successful completion of this course is a prerequisite for Level 1.
The College, as a PASCH school, offers many exchange options available to German students only. We have established exchange programmes with our sister schools, and it is hoped that many students will have a Germany experience during their study of the language. The 10th Ashburton College German tour takes place in 2022.
For NCEA Levels 1, 2 & 3 courses will be made up of a selection of the stated standards. This will happen at the beginning of the year with the assigned teacher.
