Dive into the language and learn actively with roleplay, interviews and projects. Our lessons are tailored to various age-groups and always full of variety.

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.
