Lower Secondary German

The benefits of studying Lower Secondary German

This Lower Secondary German course is ideal for children new to the German language. Communicating in German will help your child get to know the German people and the German culture. Learning another language, such as German, will open your child’s mind to new ideas and new ways of looking at the world.

Studying our Lower Secondary German homeschooling course (English National Curriculum Key Stage 3) is an ideal preparation for IGCSE German studies.

We can’t begin to thank you enough for everything! We started this journey with a lot of trepidation and uncertainty. Not knowing anyone personally who has actually homeschooled their children made the entire experience all the more daunting. However, we found the structure and content of work at Wolsey Hall very straightforward and easy to follow. This entire experience has made Haroon take ownership of his learning and be a lot more involved in his studies. This journey was definitely made a lot easier by having you as our Progress Manager! The communication on your side has always been fantastic and you’ve always been so prompt with your replies which made everything so much easier!
