GERMAN

AT HAYBRIDGE HIGH SCHOOL

 

INCREASE YOUR JOB OPPORTUNITIES WITH GERMAN AND FOREIGN COMPANIES.

 

WHY STUDY GERMAN?

Being able to speak German increases your job opportunities with German and foreign companies in your own country and abroad, whilst proficiency in German also helps you to function productively for an employer with global business connections. Tourists from German-speaking countries travel wide and far and are the world’s biggest spenders when on holiday; they really appreciate being looked after by German-speaking staff and tour guides. German is the second most commonly used scientific language and Germany is the third largest contributor to research and development, offering research fellowships to scientists from abroad.

There are a generous number of scholarships and other support to study in Germany with working holiday visas available for young foreigners from a range of countries whilst special visas are offered to skilled workers and professionals. A wide range of exchange programs exists for both school and university students between Germany and many countries in the world. Finally, make the most of your travels not only in German-speaking countries, but in many other European countries where German is widely spoken, especially in Eastern Europe.

 

HOW YOU STUDY

A wide variety of teaching and learning styles are used in the development of students into confident language learners. Students will work independently, in pairs or small groups and collaboratively using a variety of resources, including topical authentic materials from countries where the target language is spoken. Students have opportunities to research in detail topics of their choice in the target language. Extensive use is made of self-study materials using all of the four language skills (reading, writing, speaking and listening). The nature of the small groups allows for extensive one-to-one coaching and discussion of work completed.
