    As active bilinguals, younger students (in grades K-2) will have plenty of opportunities to practice speaking German in this fun-filled Wednesday afternoon class. They will gain confidence in their German speaking abilities through fun, age-appropriate games, hands-on activities, songs, storytelling, and "read-alouds" which connect to a thematic unit approach.

    Older students (in grade 2-4) will gain confidence speaking German, but also work on their reading and writing abilities in German through age-appropriate activities, such as games, skits, role-playing, modern songs, and "read-alouds" which connect to a thematic unit approach.

    This scaffolded approach gives your child the opportunity to gradually acquire and use German in an exciting and enriching language experience.

    The Wednesday afternoon class is a wonderful supplement to our Saturday Kinderschule classes.
