Our Mission

 

Phillykinder is a bilingual community that brings together families in the Greater Philadelphia area to build German language friendships and celebrate events of shared cultural interest.

 

A non-profit language enrichment program, PhillyKinder provides an interactive experience for all language levels through an original and engaging curriculum.

 

Deutsch mit Spiel und Spass!

 

 

 

Who we are

 

PhillyKinder offers 

- weekly classes for German-speaking children

- weekly classes for German Beginners (small group instruction)

- a monthly playgroup

- a German summer camp 

- a monthly bookclub for adults

 

Our primary goal is to provide a supportive learning program for children being raised bilingual by fostering the development of their German language skills through interactive learning in age-appropriate groups. Lessons are conducted exclusively in German.

 

Language and culture are taught with a practical orientation and
experienced through all the senses. Group activities supplement general instruction and play a significant role in promoting a sense of community among the children. Older age groups also practice their written language skills. Lessons in each class are provided by an experienced German-speaking instructor with the help of an adult or adolescent teacher's aide.

 

Through all of its work, PhillyKinder sees itself as a community that brings together (bilingual) families in the Greater Philadelphia area.
