Schedule and fees, school year 2020 - 2021

Class time / lesson duration for online classes will be 60 minutes per lesson for all children classes. Adult classes will be 2 hours per lesson.

For the children classes German 1 and higher it is the goal to gradually increase the lesson duration to 2 hours, which remains subject to change, depending on our experience with the online learning format and the children's ability to focus. Teachers will keep parents informed about changes.

Background information: In order to recognize these higher classes, the German government requires a certain number of class hours per year.

The German Language School reserves the right to cancel a class due to low enrollment. If a family has more than 1 student, each additional student gets $10.00 off. Fees cover the entire school year from September through May. Walk-in registrations may be possible during the first 2 weeks of children classes. Mailed checks and PayPal payments are always welcome, as long as we have space left in the class (please fill out a registration form, too). No refunds will be given 2 weeks after the start of school. Please make checks payable to German Language School Naperville.
