We have worked closely with teachers to ensure our GCSE German specification will stimulate and motivate your students.

We’ve included a range of topics to cater for your needs. There are topics that will be familiar, as well as new ones that will inspire students who are interested in the culture of Germany and German-speaking communities and countries.

We’re also creating a great range of free resources to help you plan, teach and assess the new specification.

I believe AQA has worked diligently to digest the regulatory requirements and develop a specification that is fit for purpose to suit the needs of UK students.
