Classes in Rosenberg are at St. John’s United Church of Christ, 1513 West Street, Rosenberg, TX  77471, and The Woodlands at Spirit of Joy! Lutheran Church, 7550 Crownridge Drive, The Woodlands, TX  77382.

Most classes for adults are on Mondays and Wednesdays; the exceptions are the Intensive Course in the summer, which takes place five evenings a week, and our special classes on Tuesday evenings.   Morning classes are from 10:00 a.m. – 11:30 a.m., evening classes from 6:30 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.  Classes in Rosenberg and The Woodlands are held on Saturdays from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.  We teach all levels of proficiency, corresponding to the Goethe-Institut designations:  A1.1 – A1.2 – A2/B1 – B1/B2 – B2/C1 – C1/C2.  The objectives and contents of these courses are based on the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR). We  use the instruction material used by Goethe-Instituts world-wide. Course materials will be made available on the first day of class; the cost is approximately $50 ($25 for a course book and $25 for a work book), if you do not have one from a prior class.  Unfortunately, the books are not available on Amazon or any other internet site.  Materials for the children’s classes will be made available, but remain the property of GIS.

Our students often have different levels of experience in the German language.  In order for proper placement of each student, we determine the level of proficiency during a special testing day or on the first day of a course, and form the classes accordingly.

Returning students receive a discount of ten percent, and there is an early bird discount for each session (see below). We reserve the right to cancel a course that does not have the requisite number of students enrolled.
