Languages – German

Willkommen! Welcome to the German Department! Immer vorwärts!

The German Department aims to provide a supportive, carefully structured and well-resourced learning environment for all students from the First to the Upper Sixth Year.

German is taught by a highly experienced, enthusiastic team who convey their passion for the language. The foreign language is regularly used as the means of instruction and communication, as we place great emphasis on developing effective communication skills in the foreign language.

Trips, exchanges and further language activities are a vital part of the extra-curricular life of the Department, with trips to Aachen and either Berlin or another German city and an exchange with the IGS Mutterstadt. Lower School pupils enjoy the German Magazine Club, a weekly club which has produced a termly foreign language magazine for over thirteen years.
