Fit Classes Overview

Our Fit courses are designed for homeschool, private school, or other younger students who are looking to learn German in a formal setting. These courses are conducted primarily in German with content based on the Logisch! neu A1 course book. The content covered in the class is supplemented by a workbook, which students complete independently outside of class. Note that the language of these textbooks is German.Students work in class to develop their listening, speaking, reading, and writing skills.

Students who fully participate in and complete Fit A1.1, Fit A1.2, and Fit A1.3 will ideally be prepared for the Goethe-Zertifikat A1: Fit in Deutsch 1 exam for young adults, recognized globally as proof of German language ability.

NOTE about our online sign up system: We utilize Sawyer, a third-party, for payment processing and scheduling. To register for a course or camp, you will create an account in their system, and they share your contact information with us. From your Sawyer account you are able to see classes for which you are registered as well as update any information that we need on file (caregiver name, phone number, email, etc.).

Your credit card information is encrypted for your protection, and is therefore not available to us. However, if you wish to participate in a payment plan, we require that you keep your credit card information on file with us. Sawyer does not share your information and will not email you directly.
