German A Level

Studying German A Level opens the door to a wide range of opportunities. You will develop your communication and comprehension skills, broaden your understanding of German-speaking cultures and boost your employment options, both in the UK and across the world. The German course aims to train you speak and write the language with confidence, whilst encouraging you to explore key issues relevant to the German-speaking countries, Germany, Austria and Switzerland. You will also study literature, film and traditions and will learn the core skills of translation and interpretation.
