Principal Message

Saturday, March 23rd was a huge testing day at EGLS. 22 Students took one of the German proficiency test in the morning; Deutsches Sprachdiplom I, DSD – A2, and for the first time also the A1 (Vergleichsarbeit) for elementary students. The results are not back yet but after the pre correction it looks pretty promising. Keep up the awesome work!            

Liebe Grüße,
