Bildung und Sprache
Many people who attend or have attended a language course lack the opportunity to use the language in practice and practice everyday communication.
Communication training is intended to provide an opportunity to deepen the language skills already acquired and to exchange views on selected topics under guidance.
The offer can be used independently of other requirements. It takes place once a week in the morning for 3 lessons and is carried out by an experienced lecturer. In order to enable parents with young children to participate without childcare, there will be an employment offer for the children in the adjoining room.
German course A1
The offer is aimed at refugees who want to attend a low-threshold language course on level A1 and live in the district of Ronsdorf, Im Rehsiepen. The offer is preferably valid for women with young children who are not yet in regular care and therefore cannot take advantage of the standard offer of language courses. The language course takes place twice a week in the morning for 3 lessons each and is conducted by an experienced lecturer. At the same time, there will be an offer for the children in the adjoining room, so that they also have a job.
"Quartier der Förderung: School and Linguistic Charitable Support" is a funding project that includes a German course for women, including childcare, and a homework help for children and young people with a migrant background. The German course for women with children offers women the opportunity to attend a language course in which the children are looked after in a side room. The care of the children is carried out by two carers. The care opportunity allows women to concentrate on teaching with all their efforts. It all starts with language, so it is existential for us that women who are concerned about the education of their children and thus also focus on the development of a new generation are given the opportunity to learn the language of their new homeland. All women with children, the acquisition of the German language plays an essential role. Linguistic skills are, in fact, a prerequisite for the day-to-day treatment of children. We want to help these very women integrate into German culture by first learning the German language. Ultimately, what we have learned can be conveyed to the children, and so together we contribute to the education of the next generation.
In the summer holidays, the three-week language holiday programme "New Home - New Language" is offered to up to 200 newly immigrant students aged 6 to 15. In small groups, the new home of Wuppertal is explored and the German language is easily learned or deepened. With music and movement offers as well as many other exciting activities and excursions the children can live out their creativity. In addition to handicraft activities, such as the creation of glass mosaics, visits to various district libraries and children's and youth centres as well as excursions, among others to the station nature and environment and to the climbing garden, are on the program.
Interested parents have the opportunity to inform themselves about the everyday holiday life of their children and to exchange ideas. Once a week, parents can meet to discuss important topics related to everyday life in their new home.
The aim is to enable the children and parents to work intensively with Wuppertal and to get used to their new homeland.
The groups are accompanied and supervised by two teacher training students each.
Before the start of the summer holidays, schools with international language classes/groups will receive information flyers with registration forms. Registrations are of course also possible at the Municipal Integration Centre.
