ASU Offers Saturday German Classes for Elementary Students
Free German language classes for area children ages 9-12 will be offered five consecutive Saturdays, beginning Sept. 9, at Angelo State University.
"German for Kids" will be taught Saturdays, Sept. 9 through Oct. 7, by Dr. Elisabeth-Christine Muelsch, professor of French in ASU's Department of Modern Languages and a native of Germany.
The classes are scheduled 12:30-2 p.m. Saturdays in Room 121 of the Academic Building at 2502 Dena on the ASU campus.
"Learning a foreign language becomes a necessity as the cultures of our world grow increasingly interdependent," Muelsch said.
The free classes continue a program started by Dr. Otto Tetzlaff, former head of ASU's Department of Modern Languages, to interest children in the study of foreign languages.
The only requirement for the program is that parents deliver and pick up their children on time. For more information or to sign up for the class, please contact Muelsch or the Department of Modern Languages at 942-2245, Ext. 275.
