Language acquisition and language development/promotion are primarily included in nowadays education and are of great importance as they can be used as an element for integration into society, which is the reason why, we as an educational institution, consider language acquisition an essential subject of our concept.
As teachers and specialists, we act as daily and constant role models for the children, and we understand that language and continuous self-reflection are an essential part of our educational tasks, with the main goal being the creation of a supportive environment to match the children’s needs together with their individual development process.
Our educational institution offers a bilingual immersion concept where the children have contact with the English language as a second language which enables the children from an early age to learn English in a casual way and on a daily basis.
The English language is consistently spoken as an everyday language by specific and permanent teachers, while other teachers exclusively use the German language to communicate with the children. As a result, our STUGGIKIDS playfully learn the first terms and words, both in German and English, through songs, games, books, and other planned language-promoting activities.
The immersion method matches each level of the children’s individual development, from a younger to an older age child, as their main activities through their first years of life is to make new sounds learn new words, sentences, and idioms.
Through positive reinforcement and repetition, we strengthen the joy of speaking a language together with the children’s self-confidence.
