The recommended textbook is Kontakte (6th edition) and it is available to rent through the semester or purchase (price range from $15 to $30). Usage of the textbook may vary by instructor – no textbook is required for the conversational summer session.
Tuition payment is due 30 days before the start of each semester. A late fee of $25 will be added to anyone who hasn’t paid by 30 days prior. We accept credit card or PayPal at our online store or you can pay with Cash or Check during registration.
We periodically administer the National German Exam offered by the AATG (American Association of Teachers of German). This in no way reflects on your in-class grading, but is an opportunity to test your ability on a national level.
If you would like to earn college credits for our classes, we can help you arrange to take a test. We work with Glendale Community College where you can take their test (for a fee) and receive credit.
