GERMAN EDUCATION AT IELEV PRIVATE HIGH SCHOOL
About Our Mission:
As the German Department of IELEV Private High School, our mission is to ensure that our students integrate the importance and necessity of language acquisition in a global world with the philosophy of life in every field. In this context, learning German ceases to be a "goal" on its own. We aim to ensure that IELEV Private High School students achieve the future plans they dream and aim for, and contribute to the training of young people who can take an active role in social and economic life. To this end, educating well-equipped and up-to-date students brings with it a comprehensive and challenging German program.
About German Education:
The basis of German education at IELEV Private High School is based on DSD 1 (9th grade) and DSD 2 (at the beginning of 11th grade) exams and GIB programs (11th & 12th grades). Our system, which has been developed in this direction, starts our students from the A1-A2 level in the Preparatory Class and brings them to the C1 level, which is considered an advanced level. The four language competencies determined by international standards and kept at the focus at each stage of language acquisition constitute the basic requirements of our education program. In this context, "Listening comprehension, Reading comprehension, Text writing techniques, and presentation techniques" are carried out with separate studies at each level.
What We Expect From Our Students:
About using Technology and Fountain Pen in Education:
For 21st-century qualifications to take part in both academic and active life, the German department supports the correct and appropriate use of technology. In this direction, devices such as laptops, iPads, sound recordings, photographs, videos, etc. are included in the German program, and students are encouraged to study foreign languages with greater enthusiasm.
New applications are followed and intensive studies are carried out to enrich the course even more. While projects and assignments support technology, they also care about classical uses (notebook, fountain pen). No pens are allowed, except for the use of fountain pens, during the course and in homework. In this way, it was observed over time that there were positive developments in the writing of many students.
The fact that we exhibit a multi-layered approach within the methodology we use allows us to train students who are suitable for the era we are in. For the students to realize their own mistakes, it is also within the scope of the studies that the students first find their mistakes with little intervention in a controlled manner in projects or assignments. This attitude enables students to be more inquisitive and investigative.
The "academic awareness" and "academic honesty" we are trying to create are one of the most important issues that we especially emphasize in all classes. This format, which we call IELEV Private High School standard or academic format, is expected to be very useful in GIB and university education in the future.
