Welcome to Berlin Bilingual School

Bilingualism and the Bilingual Program

Our families
As a bilingual school, BBS supports families who are raising their children with English and German in Berlin.  In many cases, children growing up with two or more languages cannot read and write in the non-school language, as family interaction is largely conversational.  In dual-language households, children often answer their parents in the language of the country in which they are living, rather than in the language spoken by one or both parents, with the result that even their spoken language skills are inadequate in the non-local language.
