My family and I are moving to Berlin this year from Scotland, so I started researching school on the web and contacting them for my daughter who is 6yrs old. However when I contacted this school (as it seemed the best suited one to us after reading the schools info on the site) the lady I spoke to said that my laughter would have to be able to speak read and write enough German to get her through a normal lesson and that a language test would be the first thing they do? I'm confused now as the mission statement from the school doesn't indicate this and nor do you.
