German A level

Level A-level

What will I study?

You will learn to communicate fluently in the language both orally and in writing. You will read and listen to authentic material in order to develop your comprehension skills and your knowledge of the culture. You will study topics, literary texts and films relevant to the country/countries where the language is spoken.

Is this course right for me?

Did you enjoy the language at GCSE? Do you want to become fluent and develop your linguistic and cultural knowledge? Good linguists are risk takers and naturally inquisitive. At this level you need to be rigorous in your learning and very accurate in your application of knowledge.

Where next?

Linguists are increasingly in demand in the world of work. You may consider a degree purely in languages / linguistics / European Studies, leading to a wide variety of careers including, but not limited to, translation, interpreting, teaching, publishing, journalism and marketing. A language can also be combined with most subjects at higher education level, for example law, international relations, politics, media, business or sciences.
