October Meeting 2011

Our October meeting speaker is Barbara Gottstein-Schramm, a teacher with the KIKUS language program since its start-up in 1989. KIKUS offers a fully-integrated language learning method designed to encourage and promote early multilingualism. KIKUS (pronounced “keekooz”) stands for „Kinder in Kulturen und Sprachen" (which can be loosely translated as “Children of Many Cultures and Languages").

Originally developed to support the German language skills of young children from immigrant families in Munich kindergartens, the concept has since been expanded and applied to other languages, including English, Spanish, and Turkish. Gottstein-Schramm serves as a trainer and seminar leader for KIKUS, as well as the head of the foreign language department of the association. She will not only detail how the program has helped more than 20,000 students since its founding, but also explore the benefits of early multilingualism and development. Please join us to learn more about this important topic!
