Flexible Learning Guide

A wealth of information for parents and students as we recommence home-based flexible learning.

Course - German

Communicating in a language other than English is an enjoyable, stimulating, at times challenging and satisfying experience. Year 9 German offers experiences beyond the secondary language classroom through a variety of engaging activities that will assist students with their learning, creative expression, reflection and interaction. These may include film making, food, excursions, movies, technology, songs and language competitions. The course will give students the opportunity to broaden their horizons and to experience the enjoyment of being able to communicate with others in German.

Students will be encouraged to consider how they can use their language skills to reach out and learn from others, shifting the focus from self to giving and serving. Language creates community through building relationships with others in the local German-speaking community, whether in a local school or business or retirement home. At Covenant, we believe that language itself is a gift from God and learning to extend our speaking and thinking skills provides students the opportunity to connect with other cultures.

Australia has a large and active German-speaking community, which provides students with opportunities to practice their new German language skills within a social context and to further enrich their learning and growing experiences. German is the most widely spoken language in Europe and is one of Australia’s community languages.
