English Not your first Language?


Recommended Posts

English was my second language, and it came quite easy and naturally to me, seeing as I was surrounded by it almost as much as my native language - in my early years, apart from person to person interaction, I consumed media mostly in English via musica and image. I also had some relatives in Canada, so I occasionally got to speak English with them at a very early stage.

German is my native language, English was my secondary language. Here in Germany there are Kindergarten that offer to raise a child bilingual, but as far as I know such bilingual Kindergarten are very expensive and are too stressful for the children in my opinion anyway. English becomes a mandatory subject in the first or second grade in primary school, you could say we have no choice but to learn it.
