Secondary School (GCSE)


By learning German, you will improve your general communication skills, your cultural knowledge, and thus your opportunities in work life.


There are many German companies in the North East (let alone in the UK as a whole). Proficiency in German helps you when applying for a job with a company with global business connections.


Tourists from German-speaking countries travel wide and far, and are the world’s biggest spenders when on holiday. They appreciate to be looked after by German-speaking staff and tour guides.


Or maybe you would like to take the adventure and visit a German speaking country yourself sometime?


'If you look at the UK's future and its economic successd - with Germany as our second biggest trading partner understanding the language, understanding the culture, understanding how they do business is going to be absolutely key not just to the UK's success but also to how our young people look to the future.'
