Playful Learning

Interesting lessons, adapted to the respective age group.


Our activity and communication-oriented learning concept offers a wide range of opportunities for personal development to young learners. The teaching is varied and adapted to the respective age groups.

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

German as a Foreign Language (DaF)

The courses German as a Foreign Language (DaF) are designed children aged 8 to 12 years who want to learn German.

German as a Second Language (DaZ)

The courses German as a Second Language (DaZ) target cross cultural children aged 7 to 12, who are familiar with the German language but typically need support with their grammar, orthography and vocabulary.
