We offer German Language classes for Children & Adults in multiple locations in and around the greater Austin area. As a Goethe certified testing center we follow the Goethe curriculum so that you can pick up where you left off weather you move to China or Timbuktu.
Come join our Speaker Series with lots of interesting and fun Speakers. Most talks are Sunday afternoons, once a month during certain times of the year. Some even display their art/works/cause in our school for you to look at. It's always free but we won't throw you out if you'd like to make a donation.
Every Thursday from noon-1pm you can practice your German for FREE - Having fun is a must - the coffee is mostly hot and there's always a little snack to be had - beer included on special occasions only :-)
Great organization with lots of many engaging events throughout the year. You have to come see their grounds in downtown Austin! A gem of a location. Brent Hunter
We had a blast yesterday at the German Christmas Market. Great food, very nice people and awesome souvenirs. Fabianna Blanco
This was a cute little market with hot chocolate, coffee, samples of Gluehwein and gingerbread cookies provided for a donation along with a brat and pretzel stand, beer stand and a German band playing before you enter the building to the marketplace. Coming from LA I really enjoyed the homely feel of this market which had beautiful ornaments and hand-crafted wood toys, the offerings weren't huge in quantity, but were very much quality, beautiful items...overall a lovely event to attend whilst in Austin.Serena Lorien
