On behalf of the staff at the Surrey German Language School, we are happy to welcome you to the 2020/21 school year!
Switching from traditional classroom and face to face instructor training to computer-based training in a virtual classroom makes the learning experience entirely different for students this year.
Going online with our classes poses a multitude of challenges for the students, parents and teachers.
Apart from technological issues, our main concern are how the students can gain confidence in order to succeed in their courses with a positive vibe.
The teachers have been trained on our new online platform and will make sure that the students feel comfortable working online. The virtual classes on Zoom will resume every Saturday morning as usual.
We are looking forward to a productive partnership with you to ensure our children can achieve their highest potential even in these difficult times.
Like last school year, we had to say good-bye to four teachers. We thank Steffi Walker, Karin Tischler, Stephanie Kates and Sophia Weber for a great school year and wish them well in the future. We are happy to let you know that all vacant teacher spots could be filled with excellent new German teachers.
A heartfelt welcome to the new teachers Anett Roland, Juliane Wolfram, Sinem Pehlivan, Swati Chawla, and a special welcome back to previous teachers Annabelle Devos and Amanda Bedirian.
Let the school year begin!
