ASU Offers Saturday German Classes for Elementary Students
Free German language classes will be offered for San Angelo-area children ages 8-11 on Saturdays during the spring semester at Angelo State University.
The classes will begin Saturday, Jan. 31, and continue through Feb. 28. The classes will be taught by Dr. Elisabeth-Christine Muelsch, a member of the ASU Department of Modern Languages and a native of Germany.
The 90-minute classes will begin at 12:30 p.m. each Saturday in Room 121 of the Academic Building. The only requirement for the program is that parents deliver and pick up their children on time.
The free classes continue a program started by Dr. Otto Tetzlaff, retired head of the ASU Department of Modern Languages, to interest children in the study of foreign languages.
"Learning a foreign language becomes a necessity as the cultures of our world grow increasingly interdependent," Muelsch said.
