German is one of many world languages taught at De Anza. We provide a wide range of course levels to meet the needs of our students, including introductory and/or elementary sequences for all foreign languages offered, and intermediate and advanced courses for some.
If you have studied a language at another institution but don't know which course to start back with at De Anza, we do not offer foreign
language placement tests. However, you may contact an instructor for assistance with
placement by going to our language department faculty directories. See our German department faculty list.
Please follow these general rules to decide which course level is best for you.
- One year of high school language is equal to one quarter of De Anza language. For example, if you took German 1 & 2 in high school, you can continue with German
3 at De Anza.
- Review the German course catalog and current schedule of classes (see links on left menu).
