Sophie Scholl Schule
German Immersion Saturday School

Dear Parents and Friends,

You asked for a German immersion program in Corvallis to help children develop and/or improve their German skills and knowledge. We spent the 2012-13 school year learning more about local needs, and are excited to move forward:

Who can enroll: We plan to offer 2 classes in 2013-14: One for ages 4-6, another for young school-age students. We have a list for other age groups, such as adults or teens, and will form classes when we have 8 students for a given class. Class ages may also shift as the student population does.

Do students need to know German already?  In the youngest class, we accept both beginners and more fluent students, and for the older students, we have seen more demand from students with some German, but will add a beginner class if enough interest is in the community. We always tailor classes to student needs.

What about community? The Corvallis school enjoys inviting the community in to special seasonal events like a St. Martin parade or an egg hunt. In addition, OSU faculty and students are very involved in and supportive of the school, and the local business community supports us through frequent fundraisers that also serve as a nice way for families and friends to get together.

Location: Corvallis First Presbyterian Church, 114 SW 8th St.

Dates:  Classes meet Fridays throughout the school year
