English from the first grade
As an international elementary school we offer two models of teaching:
• English language classes or
• German language classes.
In the English language classes all subjects are taught in the English language by native English speaking teachers. The one exception to this policy is the German Language. This class is taught by a native German speaking teacher.
Children pick up a second language as easily as their first one. An early start with foreign languages helps foster comprehensive mental development.
We teach by the Immersive Method.
Immersion is the most successful method to learn a language and does not overburden a child, as this is how mother tongue is taught to babies/infants .
