Our classes run Mondays and Tuesdays after school. Deutschstunde was started as a parent education initiative and is named after the novel by Siegfried Lenz ”Die Deutschstunde“.

I am so happy to have found Deutschstunde. I am amazed how effective these lessons are. It's great my son is in a class perfect to his skill level. He enjoys the interactive nature of the tasks given.

It's fun to see my German friends every Monday. We play together and it's fun to do the team challenges. Oh yes the classes - I also like my teacher, she is funny! Homework is more fun than the one I get from school.
