Deutsche Samsstagsschule Oxford: Deutsch als Zweit- und Erstsprache
lessons for children and adults

German Language Services Oxford offers language classes for schoolchildren (Deutsche Samsstagsschule Oxford) and adults using traditional educational methods as well as techniques that integrate cultural references, such as holidays, games, food, folk tales and stories.

For younger children's classes, typical clients include bi-lingual families living in England where children are not immersed in German environs and who don't have a reference to the language outside the home. It can sometimes come as a surprise to them that other people also speak German! By playing with other children in informal settings while hearing and speaking German words and phrases they can become more accustomed to German being part of their everyday life.

We offer the following children's classes.
