We teach German as DaF ( Deutsch als Fremdsprache- German as foreign Language) to the Common European Framework of Reference for Language (CEFR).
The CEFR describes foreign language proficiency at six levels: A1 ( Beginner) and A2 ( Intermediate) DSD1/ B1 ( Advanced) and DSD II/ B2 and C1 ( High Advanced) and C2 ( Fluent as Translator).
It also defines three ‘plus’ levels (A2+, B1+, B2+). Based on empirical research and widespread consultation, this scheme makes it possible to compare tests and examinations across languages and national boundaries. Our curriculum includes conversation, listening, reading and writing, German culture and applied geography.
We have a very fluid learning environment – both socially and academically. The small class size enables the teachers to focus on each child’s unique needs. Offering your child an opportunity to learn another language is a fabulous gift.
