Adult German Classes


The DANK Haus welcomes adults with all German language proficiency from beginning, to intermediate to proficient German speakers. Students learn or improve their German language skills and make multicultural friends in a German speaking environment while experiencing German Gemütlichkeit.

At the DANK Haus, students learn German in a supportive environment with dedicated teachers and fellow classmates who are just as engaged and excited to learn German. Our curriculum provides the space for every student to learn at their pace and leisure in a fun, yet challenging and stimulating way.

Our Fall Semester is 16 sessions long and classes meet either Wednesdays 6:30-8:45pm or Saturdays 9:30-11:45am.

Our Program

Adult learners have a broad spectrum of personal and/or career-oriented educational goals.  To meet these goals, DANK Haus provides immersion language classes with challenging curricula covering listening comprehension, speaking fluency, writing, and grammar.

We offer 7 levels of instruction for everyone from the true beginner to those with high school and college level experience. Take our placement test to see which level is right for you.
