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!
Contact us for more details…

Program


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.

MelinaHello, I am a 37-year old mother of two kids, 6 and 8 years old. We are a traveling World School Family and we love learning! When we are at home, I lead a language workshop at the ELO School in Basel together with my children.
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.

Mélina.

Au Pair

Our Italian Au Pair was amazing with the children but we thought she needed to really gain something more from her experience here in Basel. We enrolled her at Elo and she instantly improved her German and gained a lot of confidence!

Young Mum

I arrived to Basel as a young mother, speaking only spanish. Elo allowed me to learn Deutsch with their Mum & Baby formula. My baby was well looked after by their babysitters so I could relax and learn! My life has changed.

I got my diploma!

I was studying for my final year and was really struggling with English. The Elo teachers have adapted their method so I could finally unlock my fear and actually passed my English exam. Languages should be fun to learn and elo teachers know that!
