Adult Courses

Our course program offers interactive, engaging and affordable German classes for adult learners at all levels from absolute beginners to fluent speakers. Classes at BGLS are small, with an average number of no more than 8 students.

All ages from 18 years and over are welcome to enrol.

Locations:

  • St Peter’s Lutheran College in Indooroopilly
  • Paddington Hall/Annexe, Communify in Paddington

Enrolments are possible for one term (9 weeks, $390 plus textbook and membership) or for 2 terms (18 weeks, $702). Enrolment for two terms is recommended for best value and learning outcomes.

Our adult courses are created to run over all 4 terms. This allows time to focus on our students’ needs and interests rather than rushing through the workbook. Plus, for most people learning a language takes a lot of time and practice.

Besides working along the “Schritte International” workbooks, we also want to set a focus on explaining and demonstrating aspects of the German culture.

Every term will at least have one fun-lesson where you won’t be working in your workbooks but on something entirely unrelated. This could be topics you ask your teacher to prepare or a topic that your teacher is passionate about. Or it could also be some kind of event such as a “Weißwurstfrühstück” (a Bavarian style breakfast).

All of our teachers are German native speakers and are happy

to share some insights around the German culture and the region they are originally from.

The workbook contents prepare you to reach a certain standardised level (e.g. A1.1) and our fun lessons, activities and events aim towards a deeper understanding of cultural aspects.

Our curriculum aligns with the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages and develops effective speaking, listening, reading and writing skills.

On request, we issue a certificate of attendance and level of competency achieved.

Please note: if the class doesn’t reach the minimum of 4 students, it may be cancelled.
