Classes

All our classes are based on the academic year, starting in the fall and ending with the spring semester. Summer classes are conversational in nature and designed to enhance the regular fall and spring semesters – please see our calendar of classes.

Are you wondering which class is right for you?  You can take practice tests online to find out what class will be the best fit.

For ALL Adult Classes:  We recommend a good German /English dictionary.

Textbooks used vary by class, and information regarding their purchase or rental will be provided by the teacher.  No textbook is required for the conversational summer session.
