Learn to speak German

Join our German Language Classes in
Surrey, BC

The Surrey German Language School offers internationally recognized Saturday morning language classes for children from Preschool, Kindergarten to Grade 12 and for Adults.

Our German teachers develop our students’ ability to read, write, understand and converse in German and, in addition, offer a broad understanding of the history and culture of Germany, Austria and Switzerland.

Our School in British Columbia is a place where students and their families also join our community and experience German heritage traditions.

We believe everyone has the capability to learn to speak German and we give our students the tools to develop their full potential.

We need your help

As a Non-Profit Organization we rely not only on tuition fees but also on donations by friends and members. Especially in this difficult time after the pandemic a lot of organizations are struggling to stay afloat.

In order to keep our doors open we would like to encourage you to support our German School with a donation of any amount. Your donation will then be mentioned here as a valued supporter of our school.

We appreciate your support very much. Thank you!
