When people speak more than one language it not only benefits the individual, but society as a whole. According to the Statista Reserch Department, many of the 11 million families living in Germany speak two or more languages.

The German Language Workshop offers intensive language training in the German language for young children, preparing them for a good start of their educational path in Germany. Training is given to children before the start of elementary school but also during the beginning phase of the first years of school.
The majority of German children know an average of 900 words at the age of three. During kindergarten, their vocabulary expands to around 2500 familiar words.
Children with the knowledge of multiple languages must learn the 1600 words in their native language before school starts. At the same time, they also have to acquire 2500 German words.
Do you know what makes you stand out?
Our best attributes are our languages! We speak several languages and learn new ones. At the German Language Workshop we improve our German language skills.
How do we do that? Simply through dynamic play, fun, dancing and singing! We learn together and from each other!

Darmstadt is an international and cosmopolitan city where people from five continents work, research, study and live together peacefully. Just under a quarter of Darmstadt citizens have a history of migration. Equal participation of people with a history of migration in all spheres of social and economic life, equal educational opportunities for all children, access to training places and entry into the labour market are major challenges in which we cooperate with civil society organizations.
We have been supporting the exemplary commitment of the VIASD e.V association (NGO) from Darmstadt since its founding in 2007 and are looking forward to an intensive cooperation in the future.
