Level 3 German

GER3
Course Description

In this course, students will move beyond discussing themselves and others, and explore current issues that are important to wider society, such as the impact of social media on young people, the immigration situation in Germany, and the environmental challenges faced by the world today. We learn how to give opinions, agree, and disagree about topics that are relevant to our community, and compare and contrast how these issues are perceived in Germany and NewZealand. These topics can be adapted and directed by the students so that we cover the aspects that are of most interest to them.
