Why choose German at PCC?
Portland Community College’s German program not only features small classes and teachers dedicated to your learning, we also sponsor activities outside the classroom: field trips, service learning, German Day, German Club and Stammtisch. Stammtisch is a monthly informal get-together at a local restaurant where we practice our German while eating and drinking traditional German fare.
