ONLINE DSS

The first of its kind in the UK!

London_engl_o_c.jpg

The ONLINE DSS is supported by the Embassy of the Federal Republic of Germany


A German Saturday School that is running totally online for everybody who can't make it to an offline Saturday School!

 

Even though online, we still 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.

Our groups are small throughout for lots of individual attention and interaction. There is a group for everyone - no matter if beginner or bilingual!

 

The ONLINE DSS leads to a German GCSE, A-level, or an internationally recognised telc exam.
