Bilingual Learning by Immersion
They simply dive into the new language and learn it without any pressure. This is made possible thanks to qualified native-speaker teachers who consistently communicate with the children in one of the two languages. An important element of language instruction is that teachers emphasise what is said with actions, gestures and facial expressions. This allows children to develop their listening comprehension skills naturally while improving their ability to speak English and German. The principle of ‘one person – one language’ also helps youngsters to acquire language and to do so more willingly. Language education is an essential part of our responsibility as a school. We therefore ensure from the outset that those whose mother tongue is not German develop their abilities in the language in the best possible way so that nothing stands in the way of a successful start to their school career.
