Description

Of all the languages in which we offer children’s courses, German is perhaps the closest to English – it’s practically our cousin!  Of course, it’s widely spoken in the heartland of Europe, not just in Germany, but also in Switzerland and Austria.  German has long been seen an important language in business and science, but it’s an important literary language as well.  Quite a few German speakers have settled in New Zealand in recent years, and we know that many of them are anxious that their children should keep in touch with the language of their heritage.

A lot of the basic vocabulary of German is quite similar to that of English, and so for children it’s really not a difficult language to learn.  The pronunciation is quite straightforward, and although you may have heard that the grammar is a bit difficult as higher levels, it’s not something which will be a problem here.  Euroasia’s children’s courses in German provide the fundamentals in the language which additional study further down the track can build on.   

Teachers on Euroasia’s German courses for children use a variety of games and activities to make learning German fun!  Children have a great time taking part in various activities designed to get them using the Germa nlanguage without really thinking about it.  We use role plays, drama, songs, rhymes and lots of games to stimulate and excite.   Sometimes, the children also make things and even put on a little presentation!  The German teachers are skilled at selecting a variety of activities to keep children purposefully occupied throughout their German lessons.
