German Classes at the New Hampshire German School

Fall classes include 9 different classes: a beginners class, 2 levels of advanced beginners classes, a low intermediate class, an intermediate level class, and an advanced class. We will also offer 3 different levels of German classes for children. We are very excited to be able to offer a parent / child class this fall.
In the spring we sent out a survey and many of you expressed that you wished the evening classes were longer, so our adult evening classes are now 1/2 hour longer, from 6:30-8:30.

These classes can only run if we have sufficient enrollment in each class so please register early. Some classes could be combined if there is not enough enrollment. If you are unsure of which class is the right one for you, feel free to send us an email or message on Facebook and we will help you find the right class for your needs. For class descriptions, please go to our website: www.nhgermanschool.com

All classes are held in classrooms at The Currier Art Center, 180 Pearl St., Manchester, NH. You can sign up for a class either online with PayPal or by downloading and sending in a registration form with payment. If you have previously taken a class with us, you can also send us an email telling us of your intention to continue with a class.
