Toronto German Schools

The Deutsche Sprachschulen Metro Toronto Inc. is one of the largest German schools in Canada and has been teaching children for over 60 years.

We are an approved examination school for the German Language Diploma (DSD) of the Conference of Ministers of Education and part of the Pasch Schools Initiative, a global network of about 1,800 schools. “Schools: Partners of the Future”. PASCH is an initiative of the Federal Foreign Office in cooperation with the Central Office for School Abroad (ZfA).

The Central Committee for the German Language Diploma is responsible for the development and implementation of the German Language Diploma of the Standing Conference.
This central body guarantees uniform standards and the worldwide comparability of examinations for the German Language Diploma of the Standing Conference.

The German Language Diploma (DSD) of the Conference of Ministers of Education is the only school program of the Federal Republic of Germany for German as a foreign language abroad. The German Language Diploma is awarded with an exam to complete a German language course lasting several years.

The DSD program is jointly supported by the federal government and the federal states.

The DSD exam can be taken in two stages:
The Level I DSD test examines German language skills at level B1 of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (GeR). A DSD I is proof of the necessary German language skills for access to a Studienkolleg in Germany.


The DSD Level II exam examines German language skills at level B2 / C1 of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages. A DSD II is considered proof of German language skills for a university degree in Germany.

Our Mission:

  • The ability to learn the German language and amazing cultures of Germany, Austria and Switzerland
  • Warm and caring school communities
  • Tests(A1, A2) that lead to an internationally recognized certification German Language Certificate of the KMK (DSD I, DSD II)

German language instruction is offered from Kindergarten all the way up to the achievement of the DSD II. The DSD II is Germany’s highest certificate for learning the German language outside of Germany and can lead to study at Germany universities.

Classes are held at our three schools most Saturdays through the conventional school year (September to June). Please check with your nearest  school location for details.

Our schools are members of the Canadian Association of German Language Schools KVDS and our teachers attend regular training.
