German GCSE Study Morning: Afire (12A)

Join us for our German GCSE study morning, a fun and interactive way to engage students in German language outside of the classroom! 

This session will be led by Sebastian Truskolaski, lecturer in German Cultural Studies at the University of Manchester. The day will include an introduction from Sebastian, providing contextual information and key words. This will be followed by a screening of Afire, helping learners explore a range of topics related to German language and culture. Sebastian will lead a series of exercises exploring themes and topics covered on the German GCSE syllabus.
