advanced german (DSD II)

15-18 year olds

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

class description

This community based heritage learning class is a full immersion German program with an emphasis on academic German which will bring our students on par with the German language skills of an "Abiturient" (a student who finished High School). At the same time, it is important to us that our students not only learn the language, but also the culture, and become part of our community. This class is taught online (students may take this class at the Haus - bring headphones!).

Academically, our program is accredited with the Zentralstelle für Auslandsschulwesen (ZfA), we follow the European Framework of Reference for Language (CEFR), and this class explicitly prepares students for the Deutsche Sprachdiplom II. But while we offer and prepare for this exam, students take it on a voluntary basis, and are welcome to enjoy this class without a final exam, as it is more important to us that our students enjoy learning the culture and the language than that they excel in any standardized test.

Meeting times

Classes meet ONLINE Saturdays (see detailed calendar here) from 9:15- 10:45pm. Your child(ren) can take the class at our Haus (bring headphones!), and help out as an assistant with the younger students afterwards (school day ends at 12pm).

Students can also choose our afternoon online classes, Tuesday and/or Thursday to augment their Saturday learning, or as stand-alones. Please click here to find out more.

Class placement

This Advanced German class is for students on a B1+ level, who are older than 14. If you are not sure about your child(ren)'s level, please have them take this short placement test and send us the results.

If your child(ren) have been enrolled with us in the school year 2021/22, and have passed the DSD I exam, this is the right class.

If your child(ren) are not yet on the B1+ level, we recommend signing up for our in-person Saturday classes, and/or our Afternoon Online classes.


Our school year has 32 sessions, and costs $558. If you would like to pay this amount in full, please indicate so during registration, if not, we will invoice you quarterly, resulting in 4 (four) charges of $139.50.

Discounts are available to friends of the DANK - click here to learn more!

Sign-up fee

To sign up for class, we charge a non-refundable $50 fee. This fee will be deducted from your first invoice.
