DSC teachers use the immersion teaching methodology as well as various tested techniques to improve students’ skills and confidence in the use of a foreign language. We offer our students a range of courses for various purposes. Contact Ludmila Schuster , School Director, to apply for any of the courses below (deutscheschulecorvallis@gmail.com).

Due to the COVID19 Pandemics, our classes will meet via ZOOM during the Fall 2020 and possibly Winter and Spring 2021. Please check back later for more info.
