German is the language that every year takes until at least Year 8, regardless of which year you joined in. In Year 8 you can choose whether you'd rather do German or Spanish/French (of if you are particularly languages inclined you can do both but be warned this means after school classes in Year 9).
For German you get to learn lots of useful and handy phrases such as 'gemeinsame Spritzenbenützung' or 'Drogenabhängiger'.
The German department has possibly the nicest teachers and is almost comparable to the physics department in percentage of chill teachers. Unfortunately, the poor German department are left with much worse classrooms and textbooks that likely date back to the 60s if the cover is anything to go by.
