  • English-language education, in addition to primary school

  • no long commute to school  

  • no complicated access requirements 

Our promise:

  • Live classes, interactive and oriented towards the English National Curriculum

  • fully trained, mother-tongue primary school teachers

  • courses available worldwide

About us

We are both teachers and mothers of bilingual children.


Elle has teaching experience as a primary school teacher in London, Shanghai and Berlin and holds the IB Primary Years Preparation". Christin has more than ten years of teaching experience as a high school teacher in Berlin and since 2015 also as a school coordinator for academic and career guidance in Berlin. 

With FamiLingua we want to provide orientation in the German school system and close one of the existing gaps: adequate English lessons for English-speaking children that do not attend international schools in Germany.

School Support

We are insiders in the German education system and navigate you through the jungle:

  • We support you in finding a school in Germany that fits your child.

  • We assist you with the paperwork around the school registration.

  • We help with the communication with the school.


Christin is in charge of school counselling. She has more than ten years of experience as a secondary school teacher and has children of school and pre-school age herself. Christin benefits from Elle's know-how regarding international and bilingual private schools.

In an approximately 60-minute talk, you will get an introduction to the German school system and state-specific features; in addition, advice on the types of schools that come into question and the opportunity to ask your individual questions. 


Belen says:

"We are very happy with Elle's teaching approach. Her classes are very well-prepared, age-appropriate, interesting and fun. My daughter is improving her command of English at a steady pace and is always motivated to learn during the lesson. I could not recommend Elle's teaching enough. Thank you FamiLingua!"
