GER232

Level 2, 3 Typisch Deutsch (GER232)

The course selection for the current academic year is complete. Online course selection is not available.

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: M. Gallaher

At the Senior level it is important to develop an awareness of what it means to “be German” and how that differs from “being a Kiwi”. We will be looking at aspects of “typisch Deutsch”.   

Although it is a combined class, where appropriate the material will be provided at the correct academic level and you will be assessed at the appropriate level.  

Course Content:

1. Where does a typical German live?

2. What is typical German food?

3. Fantasy and creepy tales

4. What are German films like? (the original horror movies)

5. Is there such a thing as typical German music?


This course aims to reinforce the knowledge previously acquired and to target fluency in German regarding everyday life context. This year you will continue to develop the skills of previous years and further extend them, so that by the end of this level you will be developing personal independence in German. You will be able to take part in general conversations with German speakers, understand some of what is said, and contribute relevant comments. You will be able to explain and discuss many of your own ideas and use language creatively.
