German Saturday School

"Active and fun learning..."


We are running online at the moment due to Covid-19 school closures. All our sessions are taking place on zoom.

Check out our NEW additional online courses for beginners to bilingual! They are active and fun just like our Saturday School sessions, and everyone can take part - no need to be a Saturday School member. 


At the German Saturday School Leicester, we learn German through activities - we play games, invent new things, cook and bake, do arts and crafts, and history and geography! We strive to create a fun and stimulating environment where children, young people and adults alike enjoy themselves and learn German by using it actively and purposefully in reading, writing, listening and speaking - even at break time.


Every term stands under a special theme, and all groups will adapt their activities to the current theme. Our groups are small throughout the Saturday School for lots of individual attention and interaction. There is a group for everyone - no matter if beginner or bilingual!


The German Saturday School Leicester leads to a German GCSE, A-level, or an internationally recognised telc exam.
