Reception - Grade 2 (Ersatzschule)

The Immersion Method

Everyday life in one of our bilingual primary schools is not a challenge. Even children without knowledge of a second language can easily follow the lessons, thanks to the immersion method. Immersion means that the students learn and experience both languages throughout the day.

They thus learn the new language as naturally as their mother tongue – without any pressure or being overwhelmed by too many vocabularies. The immersive method places a lot of emphasis on facial expressions and gestures. In this way, the children learn what is said from the context and gradually incorporate the new language into their everyday speech.

All-day care

Classes from Monday to Thursday between 8:40 a.m. and 3:45 p.m. and on Friday between 8:40 a.m. and 12:20 p.m. Additional childcare options from 7:45 a.m. and until 5:00 p.m.

The children receive additional lessons beyond the framework curriculum to further promote bilingualism.

Income-dependent school fees

In order to enable all children to attend our primary school, the school fees are based on the total amount of income of the parents. The individual fee is calculated in each case when the school contract is signed.
