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
I had the pleasure of taking classes with three different teachers at GTHS, and all of them were really amazing! The classes are not just about writing rules and vocabulary on the board, but rather we get to watch/listen to many engaging materials about current events, German culture/society, and other topics of interest to us! Well the selection effect at play here is that the awesome people at the management do hire great teachers! I am grateful to these folks not just for enabling me to gain such a beautiful language/useful skill, but rather for the support network and feeling of community they nurture.Muhammad Ashraf
We had a blast yesterday at the German Christmas Market. Great food, very nice people and awesome souvenirs. 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
