The German School Association of St. Louis provides affordable German language classes for children. The classes are presented by highly qualified teachers who enjoy teaching children. After an initial evaluation by a teacher, children are assigned to appropriate classes according to their skill level and age. Children work from textbooks and workbooks purchased from the school. Since language must be practiced continually, homework is assigned each Saturday.
The German School Association of St. Louis provides several German language classes for adults. Classes are taught by highly motivated and experienced teachers, most of whom are native German speakers or Americans with an extensive background in German and prolonged stays in Germany.
