Berlin: First Mandarin immersion school in Germany opens

September 28, 2011

My high school German is pretty rusty, but it looks like the first Mandarin immersion school has opened at a public school in Berlin. It appears to be atPlanetarium Elementary School, on  Ella-Kay Street 47, 10405 Berlin.

The school  goes by the name Der Deutsch-Chinesischen Grundschule.

The school is being created in two phases. In August they began the first classes for Kindergarten, first and second graders with Chinese as a focus, 4 to 7 hours a week of instruction.

In the second phase, beginning with the 2012 school year, they will inaugurate bilingual classes.
