The 2022/2023 school year is approaching quickly! Information about the upcoming year can be found below.

Deutsche Schule (German Language School) for Adults will run Saturday mornings and will be starting on October 15, 2022 and will go until mid-March 2023 (perhaps longer depending on missed classes due to weather or other reasons). The school term consists of 20 classes, each class is one-and-a-half hours in length. This year we are offering 3 courses: A1-1, A1-2, and new this year, Conversational German. Each course costs $375.00 for the school year. Your school fees include registration, lessons and textbooks/materials (that's less than $20 a lesson!). Students will only be required to bring notepads, pens and pencils.

 

Classes will be held in-person at our club house and will hopefully be able to continue this way pending restrictions outlined by AHS. Please see the contact tab for location details.

Course descriptions:

  • A1-1 course is for beginners with little to no knowledge of the German language. This course is ideal for those individuals who are looking to learn more about Germany as a whole as well as begin to speak and understand the German language. We will focus on the basics of German grammar and building conversation skills. A variety of topics covered include: alphabet and numbers, German culture and traditions, introductions and basic conversations, speaking about food and parts of the house.

  • A1-2 course is a continuation of the A1-1 course focusing on developing vocabulary and using more complex sentence structures. Topics covered include: grammar development, weather, hobbies, speaking about things in past tense. 

  • Conversational German is a new course we are offering this year. (**German Language knowledge is required to register for this course.**) Rather than following the Schritte International Neu textbooks, this course will focus primarily on conversing with other class participants on varying topics provided. Materials will be provided to guide the conversations. 

 

Course materials:

A1-1 and A1-2 will continue to use the Schritte International Neu textbooks for the adult classes.

Class times are tentatively set for the following times. These will be confirmed closer to the beginning of the new school year. 

A1-1 8:20 - 9:50 am

A1-2 10:00 - 11:30 am

Conversational German: 11:40 - 1:10 pm

 

We would hope and encourage that students and families of students will join our German Club, but it is not mandatory.
