Cock-a-doodle-doo! Why children also like multiculturalism when it comes to languages.

We don’t like to do things by halves. That’s why we don’t just offer our children nature experiences and contact with animals. We are also a
bilingual kindergarten
and teach the children English as well as German.

We apply the child-friendly
immersion principle
which involves “immersion” in another language. This means that the second language, English, is simply lived in everyday life, through role play, everyday communication, reading aloud and other activities. Just like children learn language. How we probably all would have liked to learn foreign languages in the past instead of struggling with grammar and learning vocabulary. It is important that one person, who must be a native speaker, always speaks the same language!

What is the aim of bilingual education in kindergarten?

Of course, English is the global language today. However, bilingual education is not about helping children climb the career ladder quickly. They should experience that there are also other languages, such as English, but also other languages spoken by children and teachers in our multicultural environment with an intercultural team. The children also learn that roosters in England or America don’t wake people up in the morning with cock-a-doodle-doo, but with cock-a-doodle-doo!

Speaking languages made easy: multi- and blingual environment for children

Incidentally, children cope very well with the fact that the people around them do not all have the same mother tongue. In many countries around the world, children do not speak the official language of the country in which they communicate at kindergarten and school. In Germany, too, there are many families whose children grow up bilingually as a matter of course and without any problems, without suffering any disadvantages as a result. Based on neurological research, we now know that it is easier for them to learn another language later on because the synapses are networked differently.

Here’s to a happy Cock-a-doodle-doo!
