Language is important for coexistence in everyday life. We need language to hear, speak, read, and write. It does not matter if we are in kindergarten, school, in a training course, work, or taking part in leisure activities.
Many immigrants live in Dresden. They come to Dresden from different countries within and outside the European Union. Learning German helps with integration and makes many things easier.

Daycares, Schools and University Education
Daycare – German learning in kindergarten
Children who attend a daycare facility learn the German language in everyday life there. In such a way, children quite incidentally not only learn the German language but do so in a playful manner. You can support your child by talking a lot to him or her in your mother tongue. The day care facilities tries to prepare your children for their entire life, including school as well. Language is very important for the educational success of your children. In most cases, children who know several languages learn new languages quickly.
