Goethe-Institut New York

The Goethe-Institut New York is organizing a symposium on German dual language programs for teachers, school administrators, and parents in New York City and the tri-state area.

On Saturday evening (4 - 6pm) we invite parents to join us for an information session where leading experts in the field of bi-lingual education will present on the benefits of early and sustained dual language instruction and on the best strategies for starting and supporting dual language programs at public schools.

Parents and their children are also invited to join a reading of German children's book autor Beate Dölling.
