German at Leeds Sophie Spokes presented at the Cambridge Undergraduate Conference in German Studies last week.

This is what she had to say about the experience.

'The weekend in Cambridge was an amazing experience. After arriving on the Friday evening we attended a formal hall, where before we ate a lovely meal, they banged a gong and did grace in Latin, which was a bit of a culture shock! We then enjoyed our dinner and got to know people from Cambridge and other universities who were taking part'.

Germans in Britain during the First World War

German at Leeds was delighted to welcome A level students and their teachers to a German Day yesterday in the department.

German at Leeds lecturers introduced sixth-formers and teachers to the wide variety of topics that can be studied as part of a German degree: German film, the history and politics of communist East Germany, German literature (Kafka...), the student protests of the 1960s, gender and society, and translation and applied language studies.

Teaching Resources for the new A Levels in Languages...

Dear MFL colleagues,

We are pleased to invite you to be part of the development in the School of Languages, Cultures and Societies at Leeds of some new resources for teaching A-Levels in French, Spanish and German.

In response to the changes to the A-Levels we have created a dedicated team of linguists, who will be developing a series of resources to help teachers prepare for and teach some of the new elements of the syllabi. With a focus on film and literature, we are aiming to create useful, relevant and fresh resources to support your teaching from September 2016.

'Germany's Confrontation with the Holocaust in a Global Context Exhibition' Exhibition moves to Sheffield University

FREE Entry! Germany's Confrontation with the Holocaust in a Global Context Exhibition runs from 30th Nov - 4 Dec in The University of Sheffield Students Union Auditorium - We're honoured to be working in conjunction with the University of Sheffield's School of Languages and Cultures on this thought provoking exhibition examining not a history of the Holocaust, but a consideration of how Germany has confronted (or not, at times) the Holocaust, the ways in which this has happened, and how these broad themes relate to other countries, contexts and dark pasts.

German at Leeds Footie!
