CBSE 10th Syllabus for the German Language 

The following objectives build upon the objectives The syllabus continues to follow the communicative and interactive approach. The stress is now not so much on grammar but on communication. Translations have been removed. Translation science has made enormous progress and the word to word translations that students at this level generally attempt are not relevant today any longer. Translation is a science within itself and needs rigorous training before it can be attempted.What has been incorporated is the summarisation of a German text in English. The students will get a passage in German that has to be summarised in English. Other written tasks should include- making a poster for the school notice board, writing short messages as also short formal Emails. This is in consonance with the language policy of the CBSE.

Reading Skills

Reading skills have been given special attention. Students should be familiarised with reading strategies. Awareness has to be created that there are no difficult texts but only difficult questions. This effectively means that the texts chosen should be authentic and teachers have to develop the skill of forming tasks/ exercises that help students extract the most from a seemingly difficult text.
Listening skills and speaking skills have also been incorporated. The same approach as to reading applies also to listening skills. Authentic texts using audio texts from all German speaking countries with appropriate exercises should be used. People in German speaking countries have multiple dialects and accents and are proud to use them in their day to day life. It is important to make students aware of this and get their ears used to these regional differences. 

Learning Objectives

Already stated for classes VI to VIII. The objectives given below will apply to both classes IX and X which can be treated as one unit.

  • Listen to a short audio text and respond by asking for more details
  • Listen to announcements at public places e.g. railway stations and act accordingly
  • Listen to an audio text, extract the relevant details and complete the gaps in a written text.


By the end of class 10th, students should be able to

  • Talk about future plans and intentions
  • Ask someone to clarify and elaborate what they have just said
  • Give or seek informal views in an informal discussion with friends

  • Demonstrate understanding of and respect for cultural diversity
  • Recognise how aspects of the culture of different countries become incorporated into the daily life of others.
  • Recognise advantages of another culture and try and apply to their own lives e.g. environmental awareness and waste management.

Knowledge about language

  • By the end of class X students should be able to
  • Learn to use subordinate clauses of time, place and purpose to qualify the main clause
  • Learn the use of grammatical structure e.g. verbs with prepositions to express oneself more succinctly.
