The children learn both languages through the immersion method, each teacherspeaks only in his or her own mother tongue. Thereby, the children become familiar with both languages in a natural way, be it in the morning circle, during meal timeswhen singing songs, telling stories or playing games. The language skills are acquired without really noticing. We encourage the children to express themselves in both languages and are patient. Each child may progress at his or her own pace.
Children requiring additional assistance in German, especially if they are from non-German families, are provided with extra language support from the German Kindergartenteachers and a German-speaking Phorms Primary teacher.
