German Classes for Children
The DANK Schule is ideal for children who simply want to learn a foreign language, children of German-speaking parents and native-born German children spending time here in the U.S.
Established in 1962, DANK Schule has a long history of providing quality German language education. The Federal Republic of Germany financially supports DANK Schule as an official school of German language instruction. The sooner a child starts learning a foreign language, the better. Knowledge, ability, and creativity are cultivated through the study of German, one of the world's most important and influential languages. Give your children the opportunity of a lifetime-register today!
The curriculum is designed to prepare for the Diploma of Proficiency in German (Deutsches Sprachdiplom) and includes listening comprehension, speaking fluency, writing and grammar. Testing for United States National standardized exams and the Deutsches Sprachdiplom is available. Our balanced curriculum helps students achieve advanced placement in junior and senior high school German language courses. Students are first grouped by age, then by ability level, ensuring proper attention and challenging, yet appropriate instruction.
