Headteacher’s Newsletter – Friday 1st December 2023
More people speak German as their native language than any other language in Europe, since Germany’s 83 million inhabitants make it the most populous European nation.
The German Department at Tiffin supports students to understand other countries and cultures so that they can be more open and adaptable to new experiences; ensuring that each topic contains an element of cultural reference to not only the target language country, but the wider German speaking world.
The department is committed to developing strong, lifelong linguistic skills and to encourage students to become curious and interested in the world. Ultimately, we want our students to have a love of languages, and aim to achieve this by nurturing a linguistic curiosity and an intrinsic motivation to explore and respect other cultures and people.
