Classes for adults are held on a semester basis, with 15 two-hour classes comprising a semester. Participants have a choice of Beginners-, Continuing-, B1-Intermediate- and B2-Intermediate to C1-Advanced classes, each conducted over two semesters. The B2 class runs for 4 semesters and C1 is open and will change content based on the requests of the students.
The venues for the Adult classes are:
- Dickson College on the corner of Phillip Avenue and Antill Street, the entrance is on Phillip Avenue. Parking is available in front of the school. (A1-C1)
- Erindale College, parking outside the college and the leisure center. (A1-A2)
COVID-19 Update: We have moved back to face to face classes in 2022. However, we are monitoring the situation and if the situation requires, we will change to online classes via Zoom again.
Text books and other learning material
The Adult Division currently uses two text book series:
- Beginners A1-Class: Menschen A1
- Continuing A2-Class: Menschen A2
- Intermediate B1-Class: Menschen B1
- Intermediate B2 – Classes: Anders gedacht 3rd edition
- C1 Conversation Group: no fixed book, material purchased as needed.
Fees for all courses in semester 1-2023 are $360 for the semester. The fees do not include the cost of text and work books and additional optional material, which you can order using the enrolment form. Continuing students might not need new books in semester 2 of a year as our course and work books cover both semesters. Optional glossaries for the lower levels only cover 1 semester each.
Students wishing to enroll at the school need to complete an online Enrolment form.
Lesson dates and times
Classes are held on Tuesday and Wednesday nights between 7pm and 9pm.

We also offer students from all our courses to join us at our free conversation evening. Once a month we get together to enjoy a beer, some food or just good company. Alternatively we might organize a “German” activity (for example to see a German movie or to go to a German, Austrian or Swiss event)
End of semester event
We run an event at the end of each semester where students are welcome to bring along friends and family. This is an occasion to catch up with study colleagues, teachers and other students of the school. We have moved from a catered venue to self-catered due to COVID but have found that this is actually a nicer option for all as it allows for a less formal get together. The school offers some catering and organises the venue and the students contribute by bringing a plate and some money for venue rental and catering costs.
