German Courses for Children and Teenagers

With École Suisse d'Allemand, young people aged 5 to 17 can learn German in a fun way. We offer 3 different programmes, and also camps during school holidays to improve their German language skills. A good way to strengthen your knowledge from an early age!

Junior Training Programmes

The École Suisse d'Allemand training centres allow children and teenagers to follow interactive and dynamic courses. Based on oral practice, lessons are given by teachers whose mother tongue is German. In a relaxed atmosphere, children can express themselves freely and gain self-confidence.

Three programmes are in place depending on the age of the students.

For young people aged 5 to 10, the "German Language Awakening" is a perfect introduction to Goethe's language. From September to June, these on-going courses in small groups (maximum 8 students) offer a one-hour lesson each week. Three different levels are available so that the youngest can evolve with confidence.

For 11-14 year olds, the "Strengthening School Learning" programme is designed to deepen the German language skills taught in school. These group courses have the same function and help to prepare for the Cambridge exams. Teenagers aged 15 to 17 can follow the "Realizing Your Potential" programme, which allows them to reach an advanced level of German during 32 weeks of instruction.

At any age, private lessons (45 minutes) are possible, to improve your language level, prepare for a stay abroad or become bilingual.

German camps

In addition to these courses, German courses are available for teenagers aged 11 to 17 during school holidays. On this occasion, the École Suisse d'Allemand method uses many funny activities. Educational games or songs, at any time young people are encouraged to speak in German.

Thematic workshops (reading, grammar, vocabulary, etc.) help to reinforce their knowledge. In order not to be limited to books, city outings are organized every week. German courses take place every day (from 9 am to 2 pm) during the holidays, in groups of the same level.
