German Language Summer Camp

Please see details below about our 2nd Immersion German Language Summer Camp in Alpine.

Welcome to the German Language School of Westwood!

Welcome to the German Language School Westwood, located in Bergen County, New Jersey, just 13 miles from the George Washington Bridge. Our mission is to make learning German language and culture an enjoyable, rewarding experience for people of all ages and backgrounds.

Take a tour of our website, and then call us to arrange a visit!

We're a 50-year old non-profit school, serving more than 200 students and continuing to grow. Most of our classes are held on Saturdays, though some adult classes are offered on Thursday nights, too.

What makes us successful?

Our curriculum is progressive and tailored to the individual student. Many of our teachers are from Germany and hold degrees from German universities. Our teachers aim to make learning fun and interesting. We offer small classes for children, teens and adults. Our students have diverse cultural backgrounds, and we offer adult programs for beginners as well as intermediate and advanced students.

We are in need of your help!

In order to keep our tuition to a minimum we are relying on Volunteers. Every Family that has Saturday classes is kindly expected to sign up for 2 volunteer slots a year i.e. Hall Monitors, Set-Up, Support and Clean-Up for special activities and others.
