German School of Tallahassee

The German school will be offering an online summer class for intermediate and advanced students of German. The class will be on Saturdays and will go from May 22nd to June 19th. More information is on our Classes Page.

We are planning to offer Saturday on-line classes in the fall starting on Saturday, September 11th, but this is subject to change.

Individual study with our Tutors is also available.


About Us

 

Classes are available at the beginning, and advanced levels. Classes are mixed with non-student adults, college students and older high school students. We try to tailor the class curriculums to the needs of the students, and welcome beginners with no or little knowledge of the language as well as those who have taken classes in German. We also welcome adults and young people who have lived in German speaking countries and who want to improve their German.

 

Our instructors are all experienced teachers with college degrees in German or language education. Many are native speakers of German, or Americans who have worked or studied in Germany.

 

The classes can also be of benefit for those who are studying German at a community college or university. Our students aren't graded, and there are no tests to pass (unless you elect to take the DSD Language Exam) so there is no pressure, and you can speak and hear German spoken in a relaxed and fun environment.

 

All classes are on Saturdays starting at 10 a.m. with two hours of instruction. Classes are on-line using the Zoom app.

 

Individual tutoring is available for those who can't attend the Saturday classes, or want to improve their German language skills.

  

 

DSD Language Exam

 

The Deutsches Sprachdiplom (DSD) is an official German language certificate certifying levels of knowledge of the German language. We are authorized to administer examinations at levels A2 to C1. The exam tests people in reading and comprehension, listening and comprehension, writing in German, and the ability to converse and give presentations in German.
