Year 10 German

Course Description

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.
