Bilingualism | Phorms Berlin Mitte

    Language plays a key role within our educational concept. As a bilingual German-English nursery school we attach great importance to promoting both German and English to a high degree.

    The children learn the two languages according to the so-called immersion method. Each nursery school teacher speaks exclusively in his or her mother tongue of either English or German. This enables the children to learn both languages within a natural context via the morning circle, at meals and through songs, stories and games. Our daily routine supports language acquisition.

    We encourage the children to express themselves in both languages and adopt a patient approach which allows each child to progress at his or her own pace.

    We provide age-homogeneous groups for children aged 2 upwards. Depending on the age of the children, each group is supervised by two or three members of staff, including at least one person who speaks German and one person who speaks English.
