Westgate offers German classes that are divided into regular and advanced streams.

Those coming to Westgate from the bilingual programs in Grade 6 and 7 will be placed in the advanced stream.

Those students coming in with little or no German will be placed in the regular stream. Grade 7 regular stream begins at the very beginning, assuming students have no prior understanding of the language.

Students in Grade 11 are invited to take part in a three-month German exchange program.

We offer an opportunity to write the Sprachdiplom Examinations (Standardized Language Levels recognized by the German Government and the European Union) at various grade levels:

A1 – For Regular Grade 9 or 10

A2 – For Grade 8 Advanced or Regular Grade 11 B1 – For Grade 10 Advanced

B2/C1 – For Grade 12 students who are either in the Advanced Stream or who have been an Exchange Student. This exam is the equivalent of a German university entrance exam.
