Key Stage 4

In Years 10 and 11, students follow the AQA GCSE German course, specification code 4665. Here is the link

http://www.aqa.org.uk/subjects/german/gcse/german/-4665

The site contains everything you need to know about the course and there are vocab lists and exam practice materials.

Some very useful links can be found here.

Students should use a dictionary for KS4. We recommend

http://www.wordreference.com/

Google translate is only useful if you want to hear the German you have typed in. Please do not let your child use google translate for translating into or from German.

Klar.co.uk. is an excellent website for GCSE topics. We subscribed to : username heidelberg  password deutsch

Languages Online is also a great resource for GCSE and there is lots of it.

We also recommend Gut which is free between 4pm and 9am and at weekends.
