Multilingualism becoming increasingly important
Language is part of our lives, we talk all day. The more one asks a child to speak to the active and it is also challenged, the greater the vocabulary will be. Our Children’s House is bilingual, in addition to the German language is spoken in English. In our nursery and kindergarten respectively a native speaker German and a native speaker English.
Principle of immersion
The so-called “immersion” into account aspects like contextualization: The teaching of the language takes place in the context and is integrated into the action, by what has been said is mediated by actions, gestures, pointing to the children.
“One-person-one language” principle
It is important that a person uses only one language, and there is no mixing of languages. If German must be spoken, for example in the parents meetings, then find this place without the kids.
No Compromised Children
The subject “language with grammar and vocabulary” is not a priority, thus the children are not exposed to pressure and to learn the language in a playful, child-friendly and without coercion.
No correcting the children
To help the children have fun in learning the new language and develop any performance fears, they are not corrected by the educational staff, but supported and encouraged to explore the language, to discover and apply and so even to find the right word.
