Grade six students can take part in the German language proficiency assessment A2.
Students who complete the program in junior high receive advanced credit for German 10 and can challenge the German Language and Culture 30 course for additional credits that can be counted toward their high school graduation requirements.
In high school, students may seek internationally recognized certification of their German language proficiency by taking part in:
- Deutsches Sprachdiplom I examination (grade 10)
- Advanced Placement examination (grade 11)
- Deutsches Sprachdiplom II examination (grade 12)
The Deutsches Sprachdiplom II examination meets the language requirements for entrance into Germany’s highly regarded universities (which also have lower tuition fees than Canadian universities) — a particular advantage for students planning to study abroad.
Students attending school in Edmonton’s German Bilingual Program also have additional opportunities to compete for awards and bursaries. AEGBEE awards four bursaries of $500 towards post-secondary studies to four grade 12 students. Please contact us for more information.
