    12. What is the bilingual ‘immersion method’?

    Our teachers and teaching assistants help the children to learn English and/or German using the bilingual immersion method (especially in nursery and primary school). This involves exposing all of the children’s senses to the respective language. Ideally, from a young age. Our English-speaking teachers also use facial expressions, gestures, pictures, and symbols to back up the spoken word. Above all, this helps to ensure that language is part of the daily activities and can be learned in a fun and playful way.

    14. What training and development opportunities are available at Phorms?

    Training and development is very important to us at Phorms Education. Our guiding principle: only if teachers are keen to improve themselves can they inspire children to learn.

Furthermore, the staff at Phorms also have opportunities to develop their skills in an informal context, such as by receiving advice from their colleagues or sitting in on each other’s classes. The ongoing development of each individual creates a diverse teaching environment at the Phorms educational institutions and supports the staff in their day-to-day work. A representative example of our training and development platforms is the Phormative education conference. phorms.de/de/ueber-phorms/bildungskonferenz/konzept/ .
