  1. Hello wise ones, I hope some of you that have lived in the region longer can help me. Me and my daughter are dual US/German and have lived in the US until 3 months ago. She is bilingual as it was easy for me to speak German to her at home and have her learn English in school, but her English is diminishing fast now that she goes to a german Kindergarten.   I'm looking for options of where to meet English speaking families, join clubs or even take courses. We live in the Malsch/St.Leon-Rot/Wiesloch area. Everything I find is pretty far. Both bilingual schools are in HD and expensive an it would take me 1h+ to bring her and go to work, so I don't think it's practical... Ideally I would love to find her a native speaking friend or even babysitter, but I don't know where to look... I tried betreut.de and even paid to sign up and not one of the 5 people I contacted answered me even.   How do you make sure your kids keep up their English? (I guess I#m kind of in a special situation since my mother tongue is German. I work full time and only see my daughter 2-3h a day in the evening and do not want to talk English with her all the time If you know of any club or someone with a teenager who would like to babysit or families with kids in my area, can you get me in touch?   Thanks for all advice!
