German A: Literature


IB German A: Literature is a two-year course and is the equivalent course for German native speakers to the English A: Literature course. It involves the study and literary appreciation of a wide range of German authors, genres and literary periods, as well as two works translated into German. Pupils who complete both the English and German Group One courses receive the distinction of gaining a bilingual Diploma.


Entry requirements: German as a first language, and Pre-IB German course from Gresham’s or equivalent.

The IB German A: Literature course encourages pupils to explore the power of language through fiction and literary non-fiction. The reading list covers both famous ‘classics’ and more current works. Pupils will read at least nine works for Standard Level and 13 for Higher Level.
