This subject consolidates and builds upon the basic skills and knowledge acquired in German 1. It continues to provide a firm grounding in the fundamentals of German grammar, the tense system and language structure in conjunction with the development of cultural literacy, focussing on regional cultural and linguistic diversity in the German-speaking world. Through cultural components, which include architecture, music and literature, students enhance their vocabulary and engage with more complex grammatical and syntactic structures to enable them to understand more sophisticated texts drawn from a variety of sources – such as biographical, journalistic, popular media and literary texts – and expand their appreciation of texts in context. Emphasis is placed on increased oral proficiency, enhanced communicative skills and the ability to initiate and sustain conversation in a greater range of informal and formal settings. Students also improve their written proficiency in German through writing short narratives, i.e. news reports and biographies, and engage in guided creative writing.
