Books and teaching material

We have used „Go Ahead“ series 6-10 for a long time now which provides us with the necessary grammar and enough material for working on texts and extending our general knowledge.

In addition to this we use „Mail for you“ which covers a wide range of business letters and the corresponding vocabulary for grades 9-10, 10Z and 11Z respectively.

Lectures in different grades

To improve oral skills at a relatively early stage, students are expected to hold a short lecture on a topic of their own choice (5 – 8 min) and to provide information material. Similar activities are performed in other subjects such as German and History in order to practise the ability of speaking freely in front of an audience only using prompt cards or short notes.

Graduating students take part in special speaking classes to prepare for the oral part of the final exams.
