Teacher in Charge:
The course focuses on communication in German using simple language in familiar contexts through the four skills, Listening, Speaking, Reading and Writing. Students study at Levels 5 and 6 of the New Zealand Curriculum and achieve social competence with the language.
The emphasis is on communication: using the past tenses; describing, comparing and contrasting people, places and things; problems and solutions; in formal situations; about immediate plans, hopes, wishes and intentions. The contexts for this communication are chosen in consultation with the students.
