CONCEPT

TRADITIONS AND INNOVATIONS – TWO FACETS OF THE SAME COIN

The idea of an educational institution in Belin, that meets the demands and challenges of the modern world our children will live in, is in the core of the International Lomonosov schools’ pedagogical concept. This institution harmoniously combines teaching and extra-curricular creative work with children in order to discover and develop their talents, to stimulate and guide their interests in various fields.
It is of high importance for us to optimise traditional and innovative teaching concepts used in educational institutions around the globe. It is our academic ambition that the chosen pedagogical principles and methods are shared by our teachers, are well applied and further developed in their work. Our primary school aims at building up a solid foundation for a smooth transfer to a gymnasium or a secondary school, and then to the next stage of education in leading universities in Germany and worldwide.

MULTILINGUALISM – THE KEY TO THE WORLD

We believe that encouraging children to master their native language is vital for development of children’s apptitude for multiligualism. A vast amount of academic research proves that learning languages in a natural bilingual environment (German and Russian in our schools) is intellectually stimulating, and good for harmonious, comprehensive growing and mental well-being of children.

DIALOGUE OF CULTURES

We see the educational and teaching processes in the International Lomonosov school as a dynamic mutually enriching dialogue. Our pupils are right in the center of this dialogue, they live and study in two clutures – German and Russian – at the same time. The school is committed to guiding children in the modern globalised world, and to providing children with all the necessary tools and knowledge to live in this world, including the skill to speak three languages (German, Russian and English) fluently.
Our teachers have different pedagogical backgrounds, and a complementary dialogue of different teaching approaches is also important for the school’s atmosphere. We have special requirements for and expectations from our teachers, not only are they native speakers, but also bearers of German and Russian traditions, manners and customs. We highly appreciate and support the dialogue between the school and the families of our pupils, which enriches the learning and education processes. Together we focus on bringing up children who understand and respect family traditions and values.

LOOKING AHEAD

We believe that to support children in mastering their mother tongue in a bilingual situation is vital for the development of a child’s multilingual skills. Multilingualism in the 21st century is no longer an elite privilige for the ‘select few’. It is becoming a life-norm and an implication for a successful career in the globalised world today.
Russian is the native language for more than 2 million people in Germany and around 200.000 in Berlin. Speaking a mother tongue fluently, reading and writing in one’s native language, appreciation of one’s belonging to the Russian culture is a good start for getting to know other languages and cultures.
German becomes the second native language for these children, therefore the school is working intensely to develop and improve German skills of our pupils.

CREATIVITY

Nurturing children’s creativity is valued in our school. We develop our pupils’ esthetic perception of the world. Our profound experience with pre-school children proves the importance of an early esthetic development. Getting aquainted with outstanding pieces of literature, attending concerts and program events, going to cinema and theater, museums and galleries, taking part in cultural events in Berlin – all this is an indispensible part of education in the Lomonosov school. We are sure that this makes a profound impact on the children’s personalities and their intellectual development.

FORWARD TO NEW HORIZONS

The International Lomonosov schools are very well positioned in the educational landscape of the German capital thanks to our distinguished profile and the quality teaching. We actively participate in festivals, local sports and community activities, competitions and tests in Berlin and nationwide. We keep up an ongoing exchange of experience with bilingual schools in Berlin and Germany, as well as with partner schools from other countries where Russian is taught as a school subject, and with other educational institutions in Russia (schools, pedagogic universities, etc.)
