The present cyber age is making the world smaller day by day. In the realm of education, we can no longer remain confined to the territorial limits of cities, states or nations. So, to counter the challenges of an international interface, it is quite essential to understand the foreign culture, languages, etc. Within the Framework of Schools: Partners for the future (PASCH) initiative, Paragon Senior Secondary School, gives its students global exposure through the learning of German Language. We believe that multilingualism broadens a child's horizon and increases their future prospects. As a "Partner Schule" (Partner School), under PASCH, we emphasize on structured learning of German- as a foreign language. Using varied and interactive teaching methods (books, games and technology), the German Language teacher, facilitates, inspires and imparts practical application and joy to the entire learning process. The Library is equipped with books and audio-visual aids on the language, culture, traditions and geography of Germany. Through Goethe Institute/ Max Mueller Bhawan, New Delhi, Youth Camps and Workshops are conducted for students annually.
Activities like German Interschool competitions, school Exhibitions, Carnivals, Music and Film festivals are an intrinsic part of the German Language Curriculum. Our children are taught to be fit to pass the A1 Level examination (conducted by Goethe Institute) by the time they are in class IX. This is the first level of the six-level scale of competence, laid down in the Common European Framework of reference for Languages (CEFR). Upon receiving the A1 Level certificate, the children become eligible to participate in Youth camp in Germany, We send two children every year for this. The selection criteria are set by the Goethe Institute, and are usually on the basis of a basic level of German Language competence (spoken, written and auditory). A curious, involved, outgoing attitude with the desire to learn and try different things is an absolute pre-requisite too and we groom our children towards it. Children who are interested may further pursue and attempt the A2 Level examination through the school. We are happy to prepare them for the same and further if need be.
