Re: ...and how about the homework of the children?

We arrived in CH (Basel) over eight years ago with no German. Kids aged 10, 6 and 4. We managed fine with google and a german dictionary, and helpful teachers. ( We had to tell one to make sure that our daughter understood what she had to do for homework ).

After a year, our children were fluent enough to explain to us what their homework was, and we could help them there. Also, we encouraged the children to discuss the homework task with their peers. This was also encouraged by the teachers.
