    She has two German classes a week.

    Hello

    She has two German classes a week.
    She has a German class twice a week.
    She has German classes twice a week.

    Are these all grammatically correct? Which one sounds best?

    Thank you.

    She has German classes twice a week.

    Is She a teacher or a student?

    She could be either I suppose, although my immediate understanding was student because of "has", if she were a teacher I would expect to see "gives".

    These are correct, and though my first thought is that "she" is a student, these sentences could also refer to a teacher. Personally, I would not say "gives a class" to mean "has a class". I would, however, say "teaches a class".

    Re: She has two German classes a week.

    The first is correct but only really works well, in my view, if she has 2 different German classes every week.

    I like the second the most, in AmE I think it's the most natural.
