The nouns, verbs, adjectives and prepositions – each in their own way pose particular difficulties for children in acquiring the German language:
No less complex is the sentence structure with its pitfalls – the position of the verbs, the negatives and all other tricks that have to be mastered, for a communication in everyday life. After that comes the pronunciation etc.
All these things we playfully practice with the children through music, crafts and dancing, focused on positive feedback and correct repetition.
What are our strengths? Our languages.
What makes us stand out? The many languages that we speak, learn and master every day.
Who are we? Although the topic has been discussed often lately, we claim that our target group has not come into focus yet. We are tackling a very current issue in a young, dynamic and forward-looking manner.
Our initiator: Bojana Knezevic, chairman of the association, Specialist in German Studies with an MA in Intercultural Communication, mother of two multilingual children and facilitator of many multilingual children in Darmstadt and surroundings.
Our supporters: We received great encouragement to start this work and to finding an association from today’s head of the department of Intercultural and International Affairs of the City of Darmstadt – Frau Dr Latorre.
