WHY TAKE THIS COURSE?

wHAT WILL YOU EXPERIENCE?

N4 German will allow you to develop your overall literacy skills and explore the interconnected nature of languages. It will also give you a good insight into how language works and will therefore improve your English. 

Learning a new language enables candidates to make connections with different people and their cultures and to play a fuller role as global citizens. The ability to use language effectively lies at the centre of thinking and learning. 

Having a N4 German will give you a very good basis for N5 German or a N4 in another language. 

You will study a range of interesting and relevant topics including healthy living, the pros and cons of social media, and employability. You will have access to a wide range of up-to-date resources (many digitally based).
