Welcome to DSSLI

Willkommen zur Deutschen Sprachschule 

Deutsche Sprachschule Long Island, Inc. (DSSLI) is a parent initiative founded in 2003 in Suffolk County, Long Island, New York. DSSLI provides continuing language education for German learners and German-speaking students of all ages and levels, and provides a network for families to expand their knowledge of German culture and to engage in cross-cultural exchanges.

  • Classes for children meet Saturday afternoons, and adult classes on weekday nights.
  • All classes meet at Stony Brook University in Stony Brook, New York.
  • In addition to German language skills, students learn about German culture and holidays.
  • Our annual DSSLI Membership Meeting will take place on Saturday, May 20, starting at 5:15pm. Children’s classes will run until 5:15pm. For more information, contact us.
