Many foreigners in Germany want their children to grow up in a bilingual or even multilingual home. We want to hear from our readers on how they are doing it and any advice they have.


One topic that foreign parents in Germany consider a lot is the languages their children are learning and speaking.

We are keen to know your experiences of raising a child or children bilingual or with several languages in Germany and what your advice for others is. 

Please fill out the form here and we will use some of the responses for a future article.

we are both from the same country (Kosovo) so speak to our won year old in our Native Albanian, while he is exposed to German at the Kindergarten. we think it works well as he is exposed to both languages. he has already started saying/understanding words from both languages!
