In our German classes we focus on active speaking, reading and writing and also on enlarging our passive comprehension of the language. Apart from literature we do this by also implementing other subjects like science, art and music since language touches all areas of our life. So we make sure that we use the main resource for learning which is: The interest of the child.
The children enjoy learning from each other – they want to “have” what the others have and to do what their companions do and we use exactly this energy for differentiated German lessons: the children learn according to their level and they learn through being taught and through teaching others. This important interaction enables them to work on projects and presentations they are actually interested in. We put a special emphasis on two areas: exercises in grace and courtesy in German and on poetry and learning poems by heart. It is my experience that memorized poetry stays with us for a lifetime and gives the children the immediate feeling: “Ich kann das” - I mastered it. Since Johann Wolfgang von Goethe is a son of Frankfurt am Main we have a great source to choose from. This activity will be run in German by Ms Walderdorff who is a trained Montressori teacher and cherished long term member of the extra curricular team. The course price will vary, dependent on the amount of students.
