NY German language classes for children
A K class is showing off their coloring skills while learning the words to the pictures they are coloring.

Classes will start the week of September 12, 2016. We observe all public holidays. All classes for younger children are held from 4:30 – 6:16 and for older children from  6:30 – 8:15. You can view the tentative schedule for the various offered classes for the 2016/2017 school year here.

In general, we follow the calendar of the schools where our classes take place. If they are closed, we are closed. If the host school is closed because of bad weather, we will cancel classes as well. If the host school dismisses children early in the afternoon, we will not have classes either.Scheduling updates are posted on this page and on our Facebook Page.

Advanced Placement: German-American-School offers Advanced Placement preparation in its Garden City location. The class is taught by Mrs. Leitner.

Sing! und Mal! Kindergarten: The German-American-School in New York has introduced a new class for children ages 5-6. The course uses singing and drawing as pedagogical tools to teach German as a foreign language in this after-school German language program. No prior German is necessary to enter the Kindergarten class. Classes are taught once a week from 4:30-6:00 p.m.


In the upcoming school year, 2016/2017, we do NOT have classes on the following days:
