German Language Acquisition

German at Aarhus International School is a language course designed to provide students with the necessary skills and intercultural understanding to communicate successfully in German. The students’ linguistic abilities are developed through receptive, productive and interactive activities.

International-mindedness is central to the IB philosophy thus German language acquisition does not only develop language skills, but also fosters intercultural understanding and global engagement.

In the German language courses through MYP 1-5 we incorporate ideas and resources that encourage students to view aspects of the language and culture from different perspectives, to make non-judgmental comparisons of language and culture, and to view language and culture in a global context.
