Language classes

 

German Language Classes starting in Semester 1, 2019

Do you speak German ?  A little bit?  Or actually pretty well?  No matter – Das Zentrum’s language classes have something on offer to suit your needs.

Our experienced, highly qualified teachers teach in a small group environment (class size 10 to 14 students) to ensure individual attention and to make the most of your ability and potential.  Our teachers are either native speakers, or have lived and worked for several years in the German-speaking regions of Europe and have extensive training and experience in both teaching German as a second language, and conveying the cultures of German-speaking societies in Europe.


Not sure what level you are at? Go to this link to take a free German language test that gives you an indication of what level you are at.  This will help you find the right class prior to enrolment.
