THE GERMAN SCHOOL OF DALLAS
The German School of Dallas offers German language classes every Saturday for children ages three and up, teenagers, and adults. Our native 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.
Classes meet Saturdays from 9:30 AM to 12:00 PM at All Saints Catholic Church, conveniently located in North Dallas off of Arapaho at 5231 Meadowcreek Drive, Dallas, TX 75248.
The German School of Dallas is supported by the Central Agency for German Schools Abroad (Zentralstelle für das Auslandsschulwesen, ZfA) (https://www.auslandsschulwesen.de/Webs/ZfA/DE/Deutsch-lernen/DSD/Fachberatung_Deutsch-als-Fremdsprache/Nordamerika/Houston/houston_node.html).
In cooperation with the ZfA, we prepare our children and teenagers to take Level Exams A1 and A2 and the German Language Diploma One and Two (Deutsches Sprachdiplom, DSD I and DSD II). In addition, as members of the American Association of Teachers of German, we also administer the AATG exams level 1 to 4.
For adults, we offer beginner, intermediate and advanced classes. Each teacher will accommodate the needs of the students on an individual basis and prepare the curriculum accordingly.

IN MEMORY OF
In June of 2020, we suffered the premature and untimely loss of Andrea Poffel, a teacher at our school and member of its Board of Directors. In recognition of her devotion to our school and its students, the Board of Directors has authorized planting a memorial tree with plaque dedication to Andrea in the Dallas Arboretum. The cost of such memorial trees is approximately $3,000. To date, over $1,000.00 has already been contributed to Andrea’s memorial tree and plaque. If you would like to contribute to this cause, please forward checks to the German School of Dallas or pay by Zelle (In memoriam Andrea Poffel).
