After a pandemic hiatus, we are pleased to once again offer a full immersion German Language after-School program together with North Star Academy in Redwood City for the Fall 2023 semester. 

Sprichst du Deutsch? We do and so can you! Join us for our Program “Hands on German”. This program is a full immersion program for students grades 4-8 using both hands-on projects as well as books and games to learn German.

For the Fall session, we will be offering a Level 1 beginner class for students grade 4-8. If all goes well, we hope to be able to expand and offer a level 1 and 2 class for the Spring session.

The Fall Session consists of 13, 1.5-hour classes from September through December. The 13 class session costs $700 per student, plus a $15 book fee. The class information including calendar and registration form can be found below and payment is due by the first day of class.
