  1. Hi! Does anyone here has kids in the IMS Wannsee school? How do you like it? Or maybe you know someone who has kids there? Any reviews, info? Can't seem to find hardly any opinions online...  Highly appreciated. 
  2. Please help me with fresh information. This topic has been raised a few times but dated back to 2006...    We are moving to Munich in April 2020. My children are 11 and 14 and they are quite bright but their German language skill is lacking.  After a lot of research and email comms with the Schulberatung I am more confused than ever about the options available.    It seems to me like the first thing to do is to learn enough German to attend normal school. We have 3 months before the end of the 2020 school year and I want to use this time as wisely as possible. So, my questions are like this:    1. do ALL Realschulen offer übergangsklassen for foreign lerners? Shall we just register at our local school where we end up living and sign up till the end of the year. Should I be looking for a Realschule or a Mittelschule?  2. if my children end up NOT being able to attend a Gymnasium... it seems to me that a Realschule graduate still has the possibility of completing an Abitur? is this correct? is there a restriction on what University courses can be studied?    these have been useful links for me :   I would love to hear about your own experience transitioning teenage kids into the German schooling. I am trying to avoid International schools if I can.    Thanks in advance.       
  3. 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 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!

  4. I don't know if anyone is interested, but in Pinneberg (so quite close to Hamburg , especially if you live on the west side) in a newly build area, an international school will open that covers pretty much all ages (preschool to 12th grade) : I am not affiliated in anyway, just noticed it after taking a shortcut due to road work, and thought it might interest some.
  5. Hi all,    I'm considering sending my 6 year old daughter to an international primary school - namely Jules Verne , International Bilingual School or PHORMS.  Does anyone have any recent experience of these or opinions?    Grateful for any thoughts
