MITsprache: Third project year successfully completed

In the school year 2013/14 we have supported around 150 children within the context of MITsprache in learning and strengthening their language skills. Children, aged 4-8 years, were taught new vocabulary, sentence structure and grammar in a playful but targeted way. Through excursions and readings we were able to create new speaking occasions again and again.

At a total of 10 kindergartens and primary schools in Berlin-Gesundbrunnen, 22 teachers have promoted the children regularly in small groups on the basis of the MITsprache concept. The kindergarten and school teachers received all teaching materials and have been trained intensively and supported by our project team.

As in the previous years, the parents of the 150 children were advised by our social worker, how they can give linguistic support to their children at home.

We are very pleased that all the children, kindergarten and school teachers and parents have participated - also in the third year of the project - with so much joy and enthusiasm. We would like to thank all participants and partners and look forward to the next school year.
