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.

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.
"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!"
