Director’s Welcome

On behalf of our faculty and staff, we welcome you to the German Language School New York at UNIS! Our school is a special place as it brings together international students and families in a vibrant and welcoming environment, while at the same time striving for academic excellence. We offer customized language programs for any level of individuals who are seeking to either learn the German language, or maintain prior knowledge of it. The German Language School dedicates Saturday mornings to fulfilling a wide-range of proficiency levels, from beginner to advanced, and from child to adult. Our main goal is to provide students with a “full immersion” program in which they may learn, practice and grow their understanding of the German language and culture of German speaking countries. Our school strives for the highest academic standard and prides itself of offering prestigious language exams offered by the German and Austrian Government. We encourage each student to think critically and express ideas and beliefs, participate in activities and events, cooperate together and as individuals to apply knowledge and principles provided within the classroom to their every day life. I hope you will join our international community!

Dear reader
