Hi and Hello!

Our family moved from Germany to San Antonio. But now we have a problem: we are searching for an english course, where my son (he is 18) and I can learn really good english. We live near Marbach Road / I 410 in the southwest and it would be great, if there is a school near there.

It would be nice, if somebody could help us. Thank you very much!

Manu

Hello Manu! Welcome to Texas! It sounds as if you need a private language course for your son. You might want to contact the University of Texas in San Antonio and explain your situation. Ask if they could give your name to the foreign language department. It's possible that your son might be able to get private tutoring if any of the professors are able to do that. At the very least, they might be a good source for information.

I wish my son was in town. He's 20 and has studied German for 6 years. He's very good but not quite fluent. He doesn't know many people in SA, it would be great if they got together and could help each other.

Good luck and enjoy your new home!

Manu.....here is a link to some other sources. German to English (ESL - English Second Language) will be harder to find than Spanish ESL, but it's out there! Best of luck!

Have you done a search to see if there are any German clubs in SA, they might be able to help you.

Millie....good suggestion! Manu...one exception....there is a social club in town called "The German Club". This club has a long time history in SA and was started by early German emmigrants to Texas over 100 years ago. There is really nothing "German" remaining about it other than the name. It's purpose is strictly social and it's membership fairly exclusive.....not to mention expensive. One could safely say it's purpose would not serve your son's needs in learning English.

You live in the Northside school district. They offer all kinds of adult classes at night and weekends. Check with them to see if they have any English as a Second Language class.

what is it with the surge of alt accounts lately?

sheesh

anywho, have you thought about rosetta stone? usually a firm disbeliever in software for learning a second language, i gave it a shot. ill admit, ive slacked and havent touched it in a while, but the lessons i did complete (first cd), i can easily recall what is what, how to pronounce it and somewhat how to write it.
