Description

Class Experience

This 10-week course, taught by a native speaker and German university professor,  can count towards credit for a German Level 1 for Middle and High-school students. It is based on one of the most advanced university level curricula in the country and incorporates fundamentals in learning German language, vocabulary, grammar and culture. 

My students always have lots of fun during the lessons and hardly realize how much they are learning each week! By the end of the semester students are able to comprehend and easily engage in basic German conversations and understand moreover the fundamentals of German history, geography and culture.  Most of my students are by then ready to take a trip to Germany or a German speaking country and are excited about their newly acquired language skills. 

Being a native speaker I have found that in teaching German the most efficient and most natural approach is a partial language immersion model. The students will hear me speak a lot of German and will have fun repeating phrases after me. We will initially focus on comprehension and then move to reading, writing and first grammatical concepts. Your scholar will not notice how much he or she is learning while having fun!!

Auf Wiedersehen!
