German Language Class

German Language Classes for Children

GERMAN LANGUAGE SCHOOL – TEMPLE SOCIETY AUSTRALIA, established more than 60 years ago, is a fully accredited after-hours community language school for children and a member of the Ethnic Schools Association of Victoria. We cater for school students who:

  • come from families in which German is spoken consistently with at least one parent (Muttersprachler)
  • are learning, or want to start learning, German as a Second Language

We offer small classes which are taught by qualified teachers of German who engage in ongoing professional development. A personal atmosphere based on trust, acceptance and respect contributes to the successful learning of German. We understand the interrelation between language and culture and participate in events, such as the AGTV German Poetry Competition, as well as organise our own cultural activities.

Classes are offered at two campuses at the Temple Society Australia, from 5.00pm to 7.30pm:

Bayswater Campus - Tuesday evenings 
51 Elizabeth Street
Bayswater  VIC  3153

Bentleigh Campus - Monday and Wednesday evenings
152 Tucker Road
Bentleigh  VIC  3204
