Deutsche Schule Corvallis - Welcome from the Director

Dear all,

On behalf of the entire German school community, it is my pleasure to welcome you to our website and to our school. Our non-profit language immersion program “Deutsche Schule Corvallis” is an educational program focusing on introducing German language and culture to the children, youth and adults in our area. We started this idea in 2012. In 2015 we became an independent, small non-profit organization with weekly and bi-weekly programs and cultural activities for children. With the help of our community, we were able to organize a German Christmas concert, host a German theater for children, and create conversation opportunities for all. We offered classes at the Corvallis Waldorf School, and at the Montessori School in Corvallis. Starting Fall 2016, we began to offer additional courses  on Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays. Also, our new programs came to life: the Parent-Child class for 2-4 year old children learning first songs, rhymes and German words with their parents, and  the adult beginning A and B classes. In 2017, we organized our first summer camp and our first summer term classes. The year 2018 brought our new library to life that  provides reading and listening opportunities for children and adults in this area - we have over 600 books and 200 DVD to share with all who have an interest. During the year 2018, we also have found a new location and offer ALL classes at one place. You will find us from now in the Education wing at the Episcopal Church of the Good Samaritan (on the 35th and Harrison) in Corvallis. Our library is located at the same place and open during the time of our classes.

We are proud to say that thanks to our community, we now teach German for over 5 years in Corvallis and are able to support additional cultural activities and events. As we grow and establish our program, we would like to be able to sustain our current programs and add more opportunities for the community to learn about German culture, music and language: open new classes, bring German cultural events to area schools, make small scholarships available to children and youth, organize cultural events in our area (puppet masters, singers, films, Festival or Market stands, events, etc.), and support the growth of the school by inviting more faculty with a strong educational background to join our mission. 

Learning foreign languages and cultures has an important role in an increasingly connected world.  It not only enables us to appreciate differences in others, but also to better understand ourselves.

Take a look at our website or our Facebook, see the calendar to find activities for your family, but please come also to visit us in person to our classes, learning activities and events. Become a stable part of our community.

 

Sincerely,

 Ludmila Schuster
