Kinder SignKinder lernen Deutsch
Kinder lernen Deutsch is a once-a-week, after school program that introduces first, second, and third-grade children from Valparaiso to beginning German language and culture through games, songs, art projects and fun. The teachers are Valpo students who are studying German, Elementary Education, or both.
