Overview of Child Classes

DSC teachers use the immersion teaching methodology and content-based learning 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 or for any information (deutscheschulecorvallis@gmail.com).

During 2024-25, we will offer all classes in-person and via zoom.
