A unique approach to language learning
What we do
Motolingu is a language learning concept for children aged 3-6 years using key principles of the human psychomotor development chain to teach German as a foreign language.
The main aspect of our work is learning through doing and experiencing. Learning with all senses is the basis of our concept. We put learning into movement and build the bridge between motor development, language, creative and cognitive processes.
Lots of fun and therefore a long-lasting learning effect!
“Tell me and I forget,
teach me and I may remember,
involve me and I learn.”
Motolingu is created as a language learning concept at a German international school abroad .
The concept is applied at an elementary school in Hamburg, Germany, where it was implemented as a part of the curriculum of the preschool.
Motolingu becomes a non-profit organisation registered in Germany/ Hamburg. We are now 'Motolingu Deutschland e.V.'

In our lessons, children are completely immersed in a foreign language. They learn by playing in a group with other children. Therefore, they develop a positive attitude towards the German language. This has a positive effect on their learning process and on their long-term learning motivation.
The combination of movement and language allows for better and faster learning progress.
Our native-speaker instructors are trained in our Motolingu method and ensure they actively introduce the participants to the foreign language through exciting and carefully chosen exercises.
