Here at Wyke, we think learning a new language is a great way to enhance your learning and broaden your horizons.
Our Modern Foreign Language department offers A-levels in French, German and Spanish, all with fantastic tutors and support staff.
So we sat down with our current year 2 German cohort to discuss the reasons why A Level German was right choice for them.
What made you decide to pick A Level German at Wyke?
Jenny: “I’ve always enjoyed the subject and Wyke was the only college in my local area that offered German as an A level.”
Holly: “German was my favourite subject at GCSE so it made sense to study it at A Level.”
Jade: “I really enjoyed the taster sessions at Wyke Start so they are what made me choose it.”
What do you like most about studying German?
Finn: “I like that there is a mix of different learning methods, so you’re really engaged in class. I really like the variety.”
Jade: “The classes are really laid-back and you get lots of support from Heather and Gabi. They’re both so helpful and Heather is lovely and really funny.”
Anya: “I really like that the class sizes are small – there are only six of us, so there are plenty of opportunities for one-to-one support.”
What advice would you give to someone who is thinking of studying German?
Holly: “The small class sizes really enhance your learning. You’ll get plenty of support and one-to-one sessions and everyone is really nice so you’ll make friends quickly.”
Anya: “The trip to Berlin means that you get to put your skills to use, so you get to enhance your connections with other people.”
Jenny: “I really enjoyed the trip to Berlin too, you learn more than just the language. You get to embrace the culture and history of Germany by visiting memorials and museums.”
Jade: “German is easier to learn than you think. I would say work hard and don’t be afraid to ask for help if you need it.”
