Willkommen to the 2022/23 school year at the Kinderschule!

class description

In these one hour long online classes students on any level can learn and finesse their German skills. We offer classes for absolute beginners, for those who have some prior knowledge, and for advanced beginner speakers, as well as conversation classes about current events and culture where students can hone their free speaking skills, their vocabulary, and their cultural knowledge about German speaking countries.
