As German teachers, we are always anxious to find new ways in grammar that make it easier for our students to learn. Peter Heinrich’s declination poster also helps a lot because we work with symbols that are easy to remember.
Als Deutsch Lehrer sind wir immer darauf bedacht, neue Wege in der Grammatik zu finden die es unseren Schülern ermöglicht einfacher zu lernen. Das Deklination Poster von Peter Heinrich hilft auch sehr dabei, da wir mit Symbolen arbeiten, die sich gut einprägen.

learning a foreign language is designed to build “global competence” in students. Students are investigating the world beyond their immediate environment; to recognize differing perspectives including others’ and their own; to effectively communicate ideas, in multiple languages, with diverse audiences; and to take action to improve conditions.
California is at the cutting edge of technological change, demographic transformation, and international engagement. It has the country’s largest population, and is its biggest producer of agricultural and manufactured goods, its main exporter and importer, and a leading center for higher education, research, the media, and philanthropy. Its population is the most international; more than a quarter of the state’s residents were born in another country. But habits of thought and structures date from the mid-twentieth century, when California was turned inward. California today lacks ideas, institutions, and policies commensurate with its global stakes and clout.
How to explain the word “Kaffeeklatsch” better, than doing it. Our students loved to get spoiled in Monday’s class with cake and hot chocolate. Vokabularien: der Teller, die Gabel, die Serviette, der Becher, der Kuchen, die Torte, die Brötchen, der Kakao, Tisch decken, stellen, legen, mögen. Phrase like: “ Ich decke den Tisch,“ „die Serviette wird gefaltet,“ „die Gabel liegt rechts,“ guten Appetit,“ „das schmeckt lecker,“ ich mag die Torte.“
Learning a Language like German can be relevant and practical, not just passive and theoretical. Our Students learn better when they are actively engaged in the learning process. They all love and enjoy this.
The value contributions of the German schools abroad
Eight social value contributions make clear what the German schools abroad do. These value contributions together make up the public value of the schools.
Education “Made in Germany”
High-quality education is one of the core values of German schools abroad. Schools around the world stand for sound knowledge transfer and excellent pedagogical support. Her trademark is the internationally recognized German school qualifications, such as the Abitur. The federal and state governments work together to ensure uniform quality standards; experienced teaching and management staff from Germany ensure their compliance. This enables education “Made in Germany” at a consistently high level.
Encounter of cultures and international understanding
German schools abroad strengthen intercultural exchange. The majority of schools are “encounter schools”. There children and young people from different countries and cultures learn together. Classes are usually multilingual. The schools teach and live cosmopolitanism and thus make an important contribution to international understanding. They raise awareness of study and work opportunities around the world. At the same time they create a close bond with Germany, where many foreign students study after graduation and enter the profession.
Partner of the economy
Many German companies are world leaders in their industries. The German Schools Abroad are an important part of this success story. Whether in industrialized or emerging countries: company employees posted abroad can count on their German children being educated in Germany. The graduates of the schools also have access to highly qualified specialists familiar with the German language and culture. Thus, the German schools abroad can help to solve the shortage of skilled workers in Germany.
Reliable charitable status
The German schools abroad are not profit-oriented schools. As a rule, they are carried by non-profit school associations or foundations. The public-private partnership provides schools with a high degree of economic autonomy, but can charge lower school fees than other international schools. They also offer various scholarship programs. Thus, the German schools abroad are an educational elite that is open to gifted students from all social classes.
Business card for Germany
The German schools abroad teach what Germany stands for. In Germany, they make it possible to experience what Germany is all about: strong education and strong values, such as democracy, equal opportunity and performance orientation. The German schools abroad traditionally support Germany’s foreign cultural and educational policy. In this way, they contribute to sustainable success in competition with other nations (“nation branding”).
Impulse generator and innovator
The German Schools Abroad offer great potential for initiating innovation in the education system – in Germany as well as in the respective home country. Teachers can contribute their experience abroad after returning to Germany, for example when teaching pupils from different cultures. Also in terms of full-day care, multilingualism and integration, the foreign schools can provide valuable impulses.
Reference point for the German community abroad
For Germans living abroad, the German schools abroad are often not only the first address for the education of their children. The schools also provide a place of community to cultivate their own cultural roots. They enable Germans abroad to maintain a bond with Germany and to maintain a German identity. The schools also create networks that ensure rapid access.
German educational ideals
The German Schools Abroad teach more than school knowledge. They make an important contribution worldwide to promote the German language and culture. Children of Germans living abroad speak their language, children from the home country learn it and use it in everyday life. The German schools abroad teach values and knowledge. They promote a sympathetic Germany with convincing educational ideals.

Young amateur detectives Mia (Marleen Quentin), Benny (Ruben Storck), and Alice (Emilia Flint) solve crimes in their big-city hometown of Hamburg, Germany. Because they are small, fiery, tough, and as a group, pack a powerful punch, they are known as The Peppercorns. Before their summer class trip to the Gruber family’s mountain ranch, Mia’s young friend Luca Gruber (Leo Gapp) warns them not to come. Luca fears that his search for the fabled treasure of the Black King has cursed the ranch. When the class arrives, a series of mysterious events seem to confirm Luca’s fears. What is behind the curse? Where will the clues lead them? Is the ranch really under the spell of an evil mountain spirit, or is someone trying to put the Grubers out of business? This is a case for the Peppercorns. With the assistance of their new classmate Johannes (Luke Matt Röntgen), the young sleuths use their combined skills to unravel this mountain mystery and hope to save the Gruber’s ranch. Full of suspense, action, and adventure, Christian Theede’s film brings the beloved German television series to the big screen.
