German Saturday School

"Active and fun learning..."


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.


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.
