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.
Adult learners are generally considered 18 years and older. Please contact us regarding attendance of high school students.

Are joining us with previous learning German experience or are you a continuing student but not sure whether moving on to the next level is right for you? Please take our placement tests to find the class level that fits your needs best. Begin with Elementary German I and move on to the next test as you score 80% and more. We recommend to register for the class level of the test in which you achieved less than 80%.
Classes are held by semester (Spring, Summer, Fall).
Spring and Fall Semesters are 16 sessions long and classes meet either Wednesdays 6:30-8:45 p.m. or Saturdays 9:30-11:45 a.m.
