Pedagogy

Educational information

Our schools are members of the PASCH network, www.pasch.de. Germany's Ministry of Foreign Affairs designed this programme to ensure the quality of german taught in schools outside the country.

To achieve this, we have modern and electronic teaching and learning material aiming at success with the acquisition of german language diplomas.

Learning is done within a well structured plan designed by specialists according to the norms established by the Common European Framework of Reference for languages. This plan defines progress at different learning levels and gives you a detailed linguistic profile to guide you.

The different learning levels, as established by the Common European Framework of Reference and used by the German Language Schools of Quebec, are described in the following self-assessment grid:
