An invitation is extended to all who wish to join us in the venture to learn German. 

Our language classes are designed to:

     --Provide an introduction for new students interested in learning German at any level
     --Refresh those with a past knowledge of German who may be traveling abroad or wish to brush up on their skills
     --Allow those who have taken classes previously to continue their studies

General Information and Policies of the German Society's Language Classes

Class materials: 

Textbooks, audio tapes and CDs are available for purchase from the German Society at reasonable prices.


Our teachers have a diverse array of backgrounds.  They are native German-speakers, translators and professors of the German language who have an admiration and respect for the Germanic culture.  They instruct not just in the language, but also in the literature, culture, business, customs and everyday life of German-speaking countries.  In that way, we make every effort to create a "total immersion" atmosphere in the teaching of the language.  

Additional Information:

Due to economic setbacks, we will no longer be able to offer prorated tuition or payment plans.

Upon joining a class, if you discover it is too basic or too advanced, you may move up or down a level within the same semester at no additional charge.

The Society does not give refunds for unattended classes.

Class Cancellations:  If classes are cancelled due to inclement weather or other unforeseen circumstances, each student will be notified via phone and email as early as possible.  At the next meeting, the teacher and students will then decide when to reschedule the missed class.
