Welcome to Schulhaus, a non-profit German language school for all ages and the official German Saturday school program in Denver and Colorado Springs. Our program offers German language classes in Denver and three other locations in Colorado to ages 4-99 at all proficiency levels. Our teachers, all professionally trained native speakers, are experts in making German fun. We can get you started in German if you are an adult beginner. Or we can teach your children how to read and write German if they are native speakers. We have German classes for everyone who wants to learn about German language and culture – check out our class times for kids and for adults. Herzlich willkommen!

Mit Freude teilen wir mit, dass wir unseren Deutschunterricht in Colorado Springs mit zwei zusätzlichen Klassen erweitern werden.

Ab dem 2. September bietet das Schulhaus Deutschunterricht am Dienstagnachmittag von 16.00 bis 18.00 für Schüler ab 5 Jahren an.  Zusätzlich bieten wir donnerstags morgens von 9.00 bis 11.00 ein Eltern-Kind-Programm an.

Unser Eltern-Kind-Programm wird von einer deutschen Diplom-Pädagogin geleitet und richtet sich an Kinder im Alter von 2-4 Jahren in Begleitung eines Erziehungsberechtigten.

In diesem zweistündigen Immersionsprogramm werden wir in Anlehnung an deutsche Kindergärten im Rhythmus der Jahreszeiten gemeinsam singen, spielen und basteln – Eltern eingeschlossen!
Im Laufe des Programmes erhalten die Eltern Materialien, um das Gelernte zu Hause vertiefen zu können sowie Tips und Informationen zur zweisprachigen Erziehung.
We are happy to announce that the Schulhaus is adding two additional classes to the program in Colorado Springs.
As of September 2nd we will be offering a German class for students 5 years and older on Tuesdays from 4:00 to 6:00PM and on Thursdays from 9:00 to 11:00 AM a parent-child- program.
In our Parent-Child-Program children ages 2-4 are accompanied by a parent or guardian. During this 2 h full immersion program we will follow the rhythm of the seasons through stories, songs, games and simple seasonal crafts, inspired by the typical German kindergarten curriculum. Throughout the class parents will receive hand-outs to review and practice the stories and songs at home, as well as support and basic information on raising bilingual children.

The instructor has a Master’s Degree in Education from a German university and many years of teaching experience.

Sommerschulhaus in in full swing and because we are having so much fun, we would like to share some of it. So far, we have fenced our heads off (well, almost), have fought epic water battles, and have eaten more apples than you can imagine. Yes, they were covered in chocolate — what were you thinking?

Find many more photos here and regular updates on our adventures on Facebook.
