The Carl-von-Ossietzky-Schule (near U-7 Südstern) is opening a new Grundschule next year that will have an emphasis on German/English. Information about the school: - Starting with only two parellel classes (1. Klasse) - No Einzugsbereich, so anyone can apply - Gebundene Ganztagsschule/Gemeinschaftsschule - Open, friendly staff During the first year the children will have some English activities on offer (native speaking Erzieher, etc.) but if enough parents show interest the Schulleiterin will push to have the school become an official German/English Europa Schule like Charles Dickens in Charlottenburg and Quentin Blake in Zehlendorf (no guarantee when or if this would happen, but there is a chance.) I am an American married to a German and we are sending our daughter there. We would love to have other children who either are growing up bi-lingually (German-English) or whose parents are interested in bi-lingual education. If you are interested, please contact the school as soon as possible. Schulleiterin: Anett Burow, e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org, Tel. 030 2250 2771 15 PLEASE NOTE: IT’S NOT TOO LATE!! As it has been hard to get the word out, there are still many places left. If you are interested in enrolling or receiving further information you can contact Frau Burow or respond to this post but please hurry. The school will start small and has the potential to become something really great, but if there aren’t enough students signed up it may be shut down before it’s had a chance to begin.
10am Mon. 25.Oct.2010 @ JFK Friendship Centre, Von-Luck-Str. 24, 14129, BerlinHi There! Kids Studio Berlin is offering a FREE Kindermusik preview class for October at our Zehlendorf location with Kindermusik educator Eleni! There will be two classes running on Monday morning, please choose the class suitable for your child then come along and discover a wonderful way to share the joy of music (making) with your little ones. Between 10am and 10.45 am we will be demonstrating the "Village" class which is suitable for newborn babies up to 18 months. In a Kindermusik Village class, we take those special bonding moments between you and your baby and add in a unique blend of musical learning activities that stimulate and engage all of the senses. Your educator will teach you how to encourage your baby’s learning through vocal play, object exploration, instruments, and creative movement. For all the information about this class you can look here! Between 11.15am to 12pm we will be demonstrating the "Our Time" class which is suitable for children from 1 and half years up to 3 years of age. Kindermusik Our Time encourages your child to be creative, to initiate their own ideas and to respond in their own ways, while your active participation gives them the security they needs. As you play instruments, sing, move, and explore, you’ll uncover an engaging musical world while building your child’s confidence, self-control and communications skills. For all the information about this class you can look here! Our Kindermusik classes already bring so much fun into the lives of young children and their care-givers in Berlin but there's always space to accommodate some new faces, so whether you're a local Berliner, and you'd like your children to develop their English skills with the help of music, or you're an English-speaking family living in Berlin, we'd be happy to have you! Come join us and bring a friend. Due to limited space we ask you to reserve your spot by Friday 22nd October by either emailing us at email@example.com or post here. If you're on facebook you can click here and RSVP us through our events. There's lots more information about Kindermusik on our blog and our website. You can direct any queries to us at our e-mail address or just pop a comment on this event page! We look forward to meeting you soon The Kids Studio Team
Hello It may seem a little strange me posting on this forum as we live in France but our past experiences from using this particular forum for our region in France have been good so I am hoping that this may also be true of this forum :) Our 17 year old son is now into his final year of study at Lycée in France and hopes to pass his Bac ( final examination required for University) with a view to going back to England next year to do a degree. German forms a large part of his final examination and he has said he feels that this is his weakest area and would like to try to improve his competency in the German language.We have lived in France since he was 10 years old so he has gone through the french education system and has passed his college exam and is now focused on getting through his final year. We wondered if their was a family with a bilingual english/german speaking child probably around a similar age that would be interested in doing an exchange holiday for for the purpose of improving their language skills. Our son is bilingual english/french speaking ( no english accent at all...)so we thought it may be of equal benefit to a student that has chosen french as a second or third language option ? and would like to gain some extra french language experience. The english speaking element would be beneficial when further explanation may be needed by either student on the whys or wherefores etc... of the language. If their is another family with a like minded son (or daughter) please contact us and we can take it from there. thank you
When we lived in the UK we had an annual pass for English Heritage and I know the National Trust does a similar thing. It meant we could take a picnic and go off and visit lots of different places at the weekend from castles and stately homes to Roman towns etc. etc. It was great value for money and I wondered if the Germans offer a similar schem. I haven't come across anything so far but would be interested ...
Hi everyone! I am looking for weekend/short break ideas outside of Berlin with my husband and 3 children (all my kids are under 5). They are not too bad on car journeys, but I don't want to go further than a 2-3 hour journey for my own sanity! We just thought it would be nice to do something while it's still "summer" and before we get restricted to school holidays. I'd appreciate any suggestions - also hotels or other accommodation. Thanks Bridget
