Language support for students not fluent in English and German

In the year 2001/2002 the subject "German as a foreign language" (DaF) was set up for all those students who require special and particular assistance. Students taking DaF-lessons will be enabled to participate fully in German-speaking classes in the shortest possible time. Children whose mother tongue is not German and who join the primary school straight from our bilingual Kindergarten receive similarly designed remedial language classes.

Qualities and characteristics best defining the school

German School Nairobi offers a demanding, high-quality education for German as well as foreign-speaking children and for students from our host country Kenya.
The school's bilingual profile will be further accentuated and enhanced by the impending introduction of the "Deutsche Internationale Abitur" (German International High School Diploma / School Leaving Examination Certificate) which will, at the same time, help to maintain the high quality standard and international competitiveness.

The syllabus is aligned to the curriculum of the Federal State of Thuringia, approved by the KMK and gives special consideration to subjects relevant in connection with the host country Kenya.

Teaching approach of the school

The academic programme is equivalent to that in Germany. English as a foreign language is taught from Class 1 (two lessons per week), from Class 2 three lessons weekly, in Class 4 four lessons a week and from Class 5 upwards five lessons per week. French as a second foreign language is taught from Class 6 onwards. Students in Class 9 have to do a two-week company placement and those of Class 11 a one-week economic field research.
