Lernvergnügen für alle! – German classes for all ages

The German School of Atlanta is offering German language classes in a unique and genuinely German environment. Classes are held on 30 Saturdays from September through May, from 09:30 AM to 12:00 PM.

The curricular goal at the German School of Atlanta is the Deutsche Sprachdiplom I & II (DSD).

Our curriculum is based on the German Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR). In preparation for the DSD, GSA students are taking the milestones tests Internationale Vergleichsarbeit A1 and A2. 

Further, GSA is administering the AATG National German Exams Level 2, 3, and 4.

The curriculum is tailored to the needs and abilities of the students. Our experienced teachers use a variety of teaching methods, age-appropriate materials and engaging activities to make the learning experience interactive and effective.
