german language school
Check back for the registration form for the 2024/2025 school year in late summer 2024.
We will not be having German School this year!
Please check back in the summer for more information on 2024/2025 school year dates.
Typically our Deutsche Schule (German Language School) for Adults runs Saturday mornings starting mid-October and will go until mid-March the following year (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. The coming year we will only be offering an A1-1 beginner's class. The course costs $400 for the entire 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. Please see the contact tab for location details.
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.
A1-1 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.
We would hope and encourage that students and families of students will join our German Club, but it is not mandatory.
A few school rules to consider and remember:
- Preregistered students only
- Respect the teachers and other students at all times
- Be on time for classes
- No smoking or smoke break during class
- No cell phones or other electronic devices are to be used during class time (unless it is for note-taking purposes.
- Students are required to catch up on missed classes prior to the next class so as not to impede the other students.
Please note that we require a minimum of 4 students to run the class. If the minimum number is not met, the course will be canceled and the school fees will be returned within a timely fashion. Thank you for your understanding.
