German A Level Course Overview
The AQA A Level in German provides students with opportunities to study the German language, as well as technological and social change, and the multicultural nature of German-speaking society. They will study highlights of German-speaking artistic culture, including art and architecture, and will learn how Germany’s political landscape was formed. Students will explore the influence of the past on present-day German-speaking communities.
Throughout their studies, they will learn the language in the context of German-speaking countries and the issues and influences which have shaped them. Students will study texts and film and will have the opportunity to carry out independent research on an area of their choice.
At A Level, students will sit exams in:
- Listening, reading and writing
- Writing (question on a set text or film)
Candidates who are beginning this course should have previously completed an IGCSE course in German, or the equivalent level of qualification.
An A Level in German provides a suitable foundation for the study of German or related courses in higher education. Equally it is suitable for candidates intending to pursue careers or further study in German, or as part of a course of general education.
