Deutsch for Kids
We teach all aspects of the German language in speaking, reading, writing and listening comprehension. In addition, cultural, geographical and historical aspects of all German speaking countries (Germany, Switzerland and Austria) form an integral part of our curricula.
Our classes are structured according to age and language background. Depending on their knowledge and whether German is the language spoken at home, students learn German either as a second or as a foreign language and are divided into two streams throughout the entire program:
German as a Foreign Language Stream:
Students learn German as a foreign language based on the “Daf-Rahmenplan” – the official curriculum developed by the Standing Committee of the German Ministers of Culture and Education. It is based on the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR)
German as a Second Language Stream:
Students understand and speak German effortlessly. They have the benefit of living in a bilingual environment or may have lived abroad. German as Second Language learners follow an adapted German elementary school curriculum. This stream works towards a DSD 1 or even DSD 2 completion.
