Theatre & Language for Kids
At Elo we know that fun & creativity stimulates learning.
So we have developed a number of classes where theatre is the key to learn a new language. It works!

Acting and learning German playfully!
For the 3-6 years old
Theatre has always been an effective tool to develop speech and communication; this also applies when learning a second language. In this case the children are encouraged to engage in a variety of playful activities to express themselves in the German language. In playing freely they will implement different theatrical techniques: acting, movement and even singing. The children will create small scenes in which speech is gradually integrated. Whatever they chose it must be fun.
For the 7-12 years old
In this course the children should not only learn the language using their head but also their body and their voice as well as learn in different social cultural situations. By acting out scenes their expressions and communication abilities can be improved. Having fun, acting and observing non-verbal and verbal communication should help the children express themselves more eloquently in German!
Here, creative and playful learning takes place!
We learn in a very natural way, together and without pressure, the German language.
Everyone is allowed to bring their own ideas, because we want to learn how to ‘learn together’. Curiosity and joy come first.
We look forward to welcoming your child to our language studio!

I am a trained pedagogue, expressive sensitivity painter and a homeschool Mom. Thanks to my years of experience with children, my self-study in those areas (pedagogy, child development, neuroscience, reformed pedagogy, psychology) and my own children, I stand for the right to constraint-free learning.
Learning should be fun.
According to scientific findings, we only retain what we have learned if we are allowed to be self-sufficient and learn with interest and joy.
Today, I like to work as a “learning companion” and I wish for us all to be able to maintain our inner learning drive.
Only then can we unfold our many potentials freely.
