German as a Foreign Language

German at our school abroad means the common methodological-differentiated teaching of native speakers and learners of German, taking into account their language skills, culture and their international environment.

The DaF (German as a foreign language) secondary school education is to be understood as a supplementary teaching offer for regular German lessons. Language problems can be dealt with more intensively and purposefully in small learning groups. Here, the four fundamental competences are supported: listening comprehension, speaking, reading comprehension, writing.

In secondary school I students have to face the challenges of subject teaching with changing teachers and subject rooms. Here, the DFU (German-language subject teaching) gains enormous importance. Each subject teacher is responsible to teach the students the expertise in an appropriate and understandable way. This requires a communicative and language-sensitive instruction.

This includes a lesson that
• creates the language abilities
• gives the students linguistic support
• practices reading strategies
• consistently repeats vocabulary
• insists on his professional claim despite heterogeneity and help
• corrects mistakes only if they have an impact on subject teaching.

In order to promote and motivate language-gifted students, German Olympic Games are held across all classes.

Grades 5 and 6: Reading and Writing Competition
Grade 7 and 8: Youth presents
Classes 9 and 10: Youth debates

It is very important to us to live the German language in everyday school life. Therefore, the DBSAA participates in events such as the International Lecture Day or insists on the use of the German language. Only through a comprehensive "language pool" will students be able to achieve optimal learning success.


Liebe Eltern, liebe Erziehungsberechtigte, Mobbing ist ein Begriff, der in aller Munde ist. Er wird gern und häufig für alle möglichen Verhaltensweisen gebraucht, die uns nicht gefallen; für Streitigkeiten unter Kindern, Provokationen, Necken, aber auch für Schikanen, Übergriffe, Erpressung. Mobbing ist ein ernst zu nehmendes Thema. Nur mit der Unterstützung möglichst vieler Helfer kann diese Form von Gewalt bekämpft und das Opfer wirksam unterstützt werden.
Ab sofort ist
Frau Doris Johnson sozialpaedagogin(at) ihre Ansprechparterin zu diesem Thema.

Dear parents, dear legal guardians, mobbing is a term that is on everyone's minds. It is used frequently for all kinds of behaviour which we do not like; for disputes among children, provocations, teasing, but also for harassment, assaults, blackmail. Bullying is a serious matter. Only with the support of as many helpers as possible can this form of violence be combated and the victim effectively supported.
As of now
