Languages are the key to accessing other countries, cultures and points of view, and the earlier children start, the easier it is for them. In addition, learning several languages at an early age promotes overall social and cognitive development. We don't have formal foreign language classes - instead the children learn English or German in daily use according to the immersion method ("the language bath"). The second language is therefore not primarily a theoretical concept, but an active means of learning. The children practically learn the language as they go along. At the same time, there are also phases in which new groups of words, expressions or grammatical aspects are looked at and analysed in detail, which leads to an awareness of similarities and differences.
Learning languages at school using the immersion method is considered - especially for younger pupils - to be a particularly successful and effective form of learning which focuses on communicative skills. It involves acquiring the language not in scenarios from textbooks but in everyday use. This intensive, discovery-based and practical form of second-language acquisition lays the foundations for lifelong language learning and the development of outstanding communicative skills.
