Teacher in Charge:
The course focuses on communication in German using appropriate language in less familiar contexts, through the four skills, Listening, Speaking, Reading and Writing. Students study at Level 7 of the New Zealand Curriculum and achieve personal independence with the language.
The emphasis is on communication: about future plans; giving and responding to advice, warnings and suggestions: expressing and responding to approval, disapproval, agreement and disagreement; giving and responding to information and opinions, giving reasons; reading about and recounting actual and imagined events in the past. The contexts for this communication are chosen in consultation with the students.
