You have found your way here to the pages of the English Department. On this page you will find information about the subject as well as hints, tips and downloads that will hopefully help you pass your exams.
English is one of the core subjects in all German schools and it is also a part of the subjects you have to master in your final exams. Whereas English at lower levels of secondary education focuses on grammar lessons, we focus on understanding written and spoken texts as well as producing those. The final exam consists of a set of standardized reading tests and a material based writing task.
Apart from the everyday experience the English Department also offers an optional course on English literature (English Book Club) and the opportunity to participate in a school trip to the UK.
To help you with your studies we have compiled a set of materials to download and use for your personal training.
