German Teacher Needed for Children in Basel

Hi everyone,

We will move to Basel soon and in order to make the integration of our 4 year old son easier, we would like to arrange private German Lessons for him. As he is only 4 years old, I guess the lessons should be more the mixture of playing and lessons.


I will appreciate if you can advise me teachers or maybe play groups who are really good with small children.

Thanks a lot in advance

Re: German Teacher Needed for Children in Basel

I just Google a bit for you. Is Migroschule convenient from where you live? They seem to have a German course for kids on Mondays at 4:45PM: https://www.klubschule.ch/Angebote/S...465.1541520214

There's also a Playgroup that offers childcare AND focus on German right by the main train station: http://www.k5kurszentrum.ch/eventrea...43.html?e=1043. Their website is also available in English.

Waste of money.

I came here with kids age 4.6 and 10- The four-year old went to kindergarten age 5, and was speaking Swiss German like a native within a few months. No need for extra lessons. The 6 and 10 year old got extra lessons provided by the community.

The oldest now have degrees.The youngest is working on it.

I totally agree but what if you decide to put your child/children in the French or other systems?

Re: German Teacher Needed for Children in Basel

What do you mean by french system? You can't send your child over to border for school afaik. If you are living in Basel your children will have to go to school in basel. You have the option between public and private school though.
