“Learning a foreign language, and the culture that goes with it, is one of the most useful things we can do to broaden the empathy and imaginative sympathy and cultural outlook of children.”
Today, with the world borders becoming more porous than ever, it is believed that having knowledge of any foreign language gives an edge to the students. It not only sharpens critical thinking but also broadens one’s perspective.
Keeping in tandem with modern education philosophy and to give deeper respect to this multifaceted world, G.D. Goenka Public School Dwarka has undertaken teaching of German Language for students. Class room teaching not only becomes a catalyst for international education but also a window to the diverse cultures of the world.
German Universities are ranked amongst the apex universities in the world and these universities award a generous number of scholarships along with other aids therefore, German as a language has received much impetus on the global scenario. The chief criterion for studying in German universities is the knowledge of German language.
To ensure that our students bag a seat in a reputed German university, our school has collaborated with the Central Office for Schools Abroad (ZfA) for the conduction of German Language Diploma (DSD).
The Central Office for Schools Abroad (ZfA) promotes teaching of German language at outstanding schools and supports them together with the Conference of Ministers of Education and Cultural Affairs of the Federal Republic of Germany, with the aim of giving German learners the opportunity to successfully study at a university in Germany. This is also intended to make a lasting contribution to deepening the friendly relations between India and the Federal Republic of Germany.
The Central Office for Schools Abroad (ZfA), on behalf of the Federal Foreign Office of the Federal Republic of Germany will support our school to carry out the German Language Diploma (DSD) of the Conference of Ministers of Education. The German language diploma is offered as German language Diploma I (DSD I, level B1) and German language Diploma II (DSD II, level B2 /C1)
DSD examinations are internationally recognized as they are in accordance with CEFR (Common European Framework of Reference for Languages) and are held worldwide according to uniform guidelines. These certificates are valid worldwide and are essential for job prospects or to pursue higher education in Germany.
Our students will undergo rigorous training lessons to appear for this international level German Language Diploma.
The primary goal of these exams is to provide official proof of linguistic competency to students who are dedicated to study at a German University or who are interested in careers where German is a prerequisite.
With this initiative, the school will also be part of “Schools: Partners for the Future” (PASCH) which is coordinated by the Foreign Office of the Federal Republic of Germany and jointly with the ZfA, the Goethe-Institute (GI), the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) and the Pedagogical Exchange Service (PAD) of the Conference of Ministers of Education, Germany. The aim of the program is to arouse sustained interest and enthusiasm for modern Germany and the German language in young people.
The completion of DSD Level exams enable students to apply for scholarships to pursue higher studies in Germany.
Students will receive the diploma presented by the Embassy of The Federal Republic of Germany, listing the individual scores of each of the four sections.
Through this endeavour, we, at G.D. Goenka Public School, Dwarka, wish to sow seeds of a batch of world leaders who can engage with different societies and are able to build cooperation between them. So, give that edge to your child and be a part of this pursuit.
