Most classes participate in weekly music lessons under the guidance of a professional voice instructor as a way of becoming acquainted with the rich heritage of German folk and popular songs. We firmly believe that singing helps language learners to overcome their reluctance to utter foreign sounds and improves their pronunciation.
At special events such as the German Canadian Club’s Christkindl Market in November, our annual Christmas Celebration in December, and our Last Day of School Party in early June, students show their parents and guests what they have learned, by singing, acting or reciting poetry on stage.
