Young Learners' Courses © Goethe-Institut

Easy and fun German

An activity-oriented and communicative learning program offers young learners plenty of varied scope for exploring their personal potential. Classes are
tailor-made for the respective age groups.


For young learners we offer courses in German as a Foreign Language and German as a Second Language.

The courses German as a Second Language (DaZ) target cross cultural children who are familiar with the German language but typically need support with their grammar, orthography and vocabulary.

The courses German as a Foreign Language (DaF) are designed for all children and teenagers between 7 and 15 years who want to learn German.
