This course Deutsch als Zweitsprache (DaZ)  targets cross cultural children who are familiar with the German language but typically need support with their grammar, orthography and vocabulary. The characteristic of these classes is that they consist of heterogenic groups. The teachers cater to the children at their own individual levels of proficiency. Therefore classes are kept small with a maximum of 12 students each and they are taught by a German teacher and an assistant teacher. The teachers do not follow a course book but use different sources and materials from Germany.

You can enrol for these courses (DaZ) by telephone or in person.
Please contact our Language Office.
