The course provides a structured and systematic revision of the essential GCSE topic areas, vocabulary and grammar. Each day will involve practice in all four GCSE skills (listening, speaking, reading and writing) related to a specific section of the syllabus. German will be used as much as possible in order to consolidate the students’ awareness of the rubrics they will face in the GCSE examination. 

The following aspects of grammar will be covered:

  • Articles
  • Cases and case endings
  • Adjectives (gender and number agreement, position, comparisons)
  • Nouns
  • Verbs (present tense, perfect tense, imperfect tense, future)
  • Pronouns (relative, personal, possessive)
  • Sentence Structure

For more advanced students:

  • Conditional and If clauses
  • Use of the infinitive
  • Passive
  • Prepositions, conjunctions, time

These grammatical concepts will be explained in the context of the topics and themes outlined below to help students become adept at using them in conversational and written contexts.
