Heidelberg Private School Center (HPC) opens new elementary school with bilingual focus

10.10.2013

In the bilingual classes at the new elementary school, students learn in German as well as in English in a playful manner. This way, educators at the HPC make use of children's natural ability to learn languages as early as possible.

With this pedagogical concept, the schoolchildren dive into a so-called “language bath”. In other words, rather than learning the second language with the systematic method used in classical language instruction, they are taught a combination of subjects such as “People, Nature and Culture” and “Movement, Games and Sports” in English. After-school options such as remedial teaching, homework assistance, and study groups are also offered in English. This approach enables students to acquire the second language in a natural way. The focus lies especially with speaking and playful interaction with the foreign language. German, math, and religion are taught in German. Because Europe and the world are growing closer together, foreign language acquisition as early as childhood has become particularly important. In line with this, the bilingual elementary school emphasizes intercultural education and the acquisition of intercultural tolerance. In addition, the state-approved school at the HPC has manageable class sizes and well-balanced daily schedules with many opportunities to engage in exercise.

Subsequent to the bilingual elementary school, the HPC also secures a spot at their own private middle school. Here, the students can choose between the regular, the sports, or the bilingual focus and thus pursue their school career in accordance with their aptitudes and abilities. In order to further encourage multilingualism, the F+U Academy of Languages offers internships and language trips both at home and abroad, where students can improve verbal as well as social skills for their future career.

The Heidelberg Private School Center (HPC) is part of the F+U group of companies founded in 1980. This is one of the largest nonprofit, private educational institutions with schools, colleges, and academies all over Germany and also in other parts of Europe. The company's longtime experience in the pedagogical field guarantees a good start for the bilingual elementary school.
