Due to the Corona virus epidemic, we find it necessary to continue with our virtual online teaching method
for our Saturday classes that started on September 12th.

The health and safety of our students, teachers and school directors is something on which we cannot compromise.
Our goal is to have students back in their school classrooms as soon as it is safe and appropriate to do so.

GASA offers classroom-based German language programs to children ages 4 – 17 years in its Saturday Schools, ages 3 – 5 years in its Kinderland School.

Saturday adult classes are offered in our Costa Mesa, Northridge, San Diego, Santa Monica, Temple City and Ventura schools, with Monday night Adult Classes in Torrance, (Alpine Village) and online classes Monday and Thursday evenings.

Our Saturday Schools offer classes from 9 am to 12 pm at 12 different campuses throughout the Southland. The Kinderland School offers its program twice weekly from 9 am to 12 pm. Our school year coincides with the public school calendar.

About Us

Multilingualism is the norm in most of the world and we believe that children who speak and write more than one language will be better prepared for life in the 21st century with its growing global economy. The best way to master another language is to start learning at an early age.
