SAMSTAGSSCHULE for young children & Preteen (Age 4 yrs to 12 yrs)
The emphasis of the GAI language program for children is natural acquisition of language in an interactive, fun environment. Our classes follow a framework which incorporates listening & speaking, singing and crafts, games and physical motion, and story time. For the older kids and intermediate level word lessons and reading / writing activities will be included as well. The children interact with and learn about German culture as they build their language skills.
