Our philosophy

Everyday life, experience, interests

The language skills of our learners are taught, practiced and applied in practice in everyday, experiential, academic and professional contexts. Of course, we take the needs, knowledge and interests of the learners into account. With us all have their say. Our school stands for a communicative, interactive and lively teaching design as a basis for active and action-oriented language acquisition. This also includes excursions in Berlin and excursions to the surrounding area, where learners have many opportunities to get to know the culture and history of the region and to improve the language in a variety of playful ways.

Natural language acquisition

The development of communicative skills is closely linked to the acquisition of basic language and speaking skills using elementary vocabulary, grammar, pronunciation and intonation. When teaching basic language skills, we attach great importance to our students acquiring their skills progressively in the order of their natural language acquisition, i.e. 1st listening comprehension, 2nd speaking, 3rd reading comprehension and 4th writing. In the basic level (A1/A2) the focus is initially on the ability to act in foreign languages, while in the intermediate level (B1/B2) the focus is being extended to reading and writing.

Discovering learning

We teach vocabulary in spiral progression, so that the already known vocabulary is used and consolidated as a basis for new terms and forms in every vocabulary expansion. In this way, semantic and grammatical structures can also be inductively made accessible or “discovered” (discovering learning), instead of just being communicated deductively in the form of rules and laws. We give great importance to the promotion of strategies for differentiation of meaning and development from the intermediate level (B1/B2) at the latest. We encourage a playful, discovering and creative use of language.
