COURSE INFORMATION

At the centre of the lessons is the bunny Hans Hase, a puppet. He talks to the children about himself, his family, where he lives, his hobbies etc. Through stories and interaction with Hans Hase, the children experience German in a fun way and build up confidence to use the language themselves in simple phrases in different situations.

Through a variety of activites ranging from story-telling and rhyming, singing and dancing, playing games and doing little handicrafts, the children are being immersed into German and acquire the language almost effortlessly.

The bunny Hans Hase programme builds on children's natural curiosity for new things. They learn a foreign language similar to learning their first language: through Listening, Seeing and Acting. They
  • play
  • sing
  • dance
  • rhyme
  • craft
  • and do lots more.
Bunny Hans Hase joins them and ensures that they enjoy themselves while learning. This way children develop a positive attitude towards language learning and a solid base for later motivated engagement with languages.
