After all, a good German grade is still incredibly important not only at school but also for the rest of their lives.

Our German course for primary school students prepares your child early on for the upcoming challenges of their entire school career. We also offer a suitable German course for upper school students, making it easy for your child to achieve good German grades. With our essay training, reading comprehension exercises, and sample texts, we teach participants at Lern-Forum Zurich everything they need to know to succeed in German. Your child will learn the many possibilities of the German language and how to use them effectively.

How important is German at elementary school & upper school really for your child?

Many parents, as well as students, often wonder how important the German grade actually is for the further course of life. After all, it is clear to everyone that school is only a fairly short period. But it is precisely here that the foundations for the rest of life are laid. Many lessons prepare your child directly or indirectly for later life, even if this may not always be immediately apparent.


In elementary school, students learn the basics of the German language. In the process, the content already goes far beyond comprehension, which is why many children also have problems with the subject of German. In the upper school, other subjects come up, which present other challenges for your child. With our German courses for elementary school and high school, we will help your child, in any case, to cope better with the subject of German, achieve better grades, and thus create the ideal conditions for his or her further life.

After all, your child will probably need good grades in German for the desired field of study just as much as for a good apprenticeship position. And those who can express themselves well in German will not only be successful in elementary school and high school, but also in working life.

The ideal German course for primary and high school!

Our German course for elementary school as well as high school is popular with many Swiss students every year. At the Lern-Forum in Zurich, you will not only find highly trained teachers but also constantly updated and proven work materials and exercises.
