Course introduction

Did you know? German is the second most important language for industry in the UK.  In other words, if you know German, you are in business.

Indeed, the scarcity of German speakers among the British population will definitely help you stand out from the crowd when it comes to launching a successful career.

A reasonable proficiency in German will also give you vastly improved opportunities to work and live in a German-speaking country.

It is a logical language that simply needs assembling, and that is exactly where we can help.

Why choose Brock for German A Level?

At Brock A Level German is taught by a native speaker with a masters degree in Languages and Literature, plus years of experience in teaching German in the UK.

You will also benefit from contact with a German-born learning assistant who will help you with your fluency, accent, emphasis and clarity of expression.

Thanks to this dedicated help and support past students have enjoyed excellent success rates in becoming near-native German speakers.

Teaching & learning

As a learner you will benefit from a liberal mix of teaching methods, including reading German newspaper articles and listening to news reports.

There will also be a wide range of other resources and engaging activities that will help bring the language to life. This often involves using modern technology.

Importantly, you will have opportunities to explore German outside of your comfort zone by immersing yourself in the German culture through exchange and scholarship programmes.
