3 to 6 years: Children start playing first dialogues with dolls and each other, acting out little plays, playing games, singing little German songs, painting motives and making things out of paper. By that as well as using a lot of additional material they get used to a regular communication  ドイツ語会話.
Using the Workbook Tamtam - Erster Kontakt Deutsch für Kinder (Hueber) or Fabuli  Student's book + Workbook (Klett) we support this process – beginning at the age of 4 to 5 - by introducing German letter by letter with many listening activities, paintings, stories, speaking events and writing exercises.
