General Semester Information
A strong team of experienced and dedicated teachers is developing the curriculum for the German School Of Northeast Kansas. German is spoken almost exclusively during instruction. In order to create an interactive and cohesive community of German speakers, each Saturday session will begin with an ‘assembly’ in which all classes - students of all ages - participate. Following the assembly, three classes will then meet simultaneously for one hour.For our younger students, we offer 2 classes, the Bären, beginnig at age 4 through age 7 and the Igel, age 7 through 14 years of age. Both groups, at age appropriate levels, will work with themes based on authentic stories, develop conversational skills, and progress to reading and writing practice. All students of the various age groups are involved in role-plays.The adult class, Sterne, will concentrate on conversational skills while immersed in the language, with a thematic focus based on the participants’ interests.
