Routes Cymru A-Level MasterClass – Zweier Ohne – Stefanie Kreibich

07/02/2018, 9:30 - 11:30

Routes into Languages Cymru and partner universities are offering a series of film and literature workshops to A level students. The workshops are designed to support delivery of the Modern Foreign Language (MFL) curriculum and aim to improve existing levels of knowledge and understanding for the student.

Through the analysis of key topics, such as main themes and characters, the workshops aim to strengthen the students’ comprehension and generate further discussion and thought. This event also gives teachers the opportunity to obtain information from the HE tutors whilst establishing links with the university.

Synopsis: This book was first published in 2001. It is set in the 1990s and is about the unusual friendship between
Johann and Ludwig, narrated by Ludwig when he is in his 20s. Their friendship starts at the age of 11 and
ends with Ludwig’s death on his 18th birthday – a day after they had lost an important rowing race to their
main rivals. The plot focuses on the months leading up to that race, the nature of the boy’s friendship,
which becomes increasingly fragile despite their promise to each other to be like twins. As Johann embarks
on a secret relationship with Ludwig’s sister Vera, Ludwig’s behaviour becomes more and more erratic and
bizarre, which ultimately ends in tragedy.
