As a German school abroad, German is our common language of communication and tuition. However, pupils are not required to have German as a native language to be admitted to DISDH. Thanks to our individual development programme, German as a Foreign Language (DaF), which is available to children from Kindergarten age, our pupils soon achieve an advanced level of German.

DISDH has its own library which stocks the latest German publications and other media. The school also organises regular readings with authors from Germany, offering pupils an active relationship to the German language.
