A proposal by the CDU-politician Carsten Linnemann provides eddy. The Union faction Deputy in the Bundestag had demanded in an Interview with the “Rheinische Post” that children would have sufficient English-speaking, before they are admitted to the primary school. “In order to get it to the point: A child who barely speaks English and understands, has to search on a primary school nothing yet,” said Linnemann of the newspaper. For affected children, there should be a pre-school compulsory, if necessary, Training should be back, the Union’s politicians.

I’m with 5, to Germany came and spoke at my Training, hardly any German. I’ve done my a-levels, studied, and run today with a PR Agency. Our politicians are empathy and imagination is missing, unfortunately, all too often, what people are capable of when they are promoted. https://t.co/CCRCLUVJlw

Muhterem Aras came only twelve years, from Turkey to Germany and graduated to a secondary school. Today, the Green is a politician in the Landtag President of Baden-Württemberg. Other politicians, such as the schleswig-Holstein Landtag Deputy Aminata Touré, also from the Greens, have had similar experiences.
I spoke no German when I came as a 12-Year-olds in the Hauptschule. As my next sitzerin in the 1. Hour saw that I had solved the math problem, I was able to do the math for you on the Board. Later, I built a tax office and President @Landtag_BW https://t.co/ohbznlyima

Where do I start because was? I spoke no German before I came to school, because my sister and I were in the nursery (!!) in the ‘ 90s. Because we are asylum seekers. A place where we would be able to learn the language! https://t.co/Zq9LwlUHg6

The Tenor of the Tweets: Even without knowledge of the language in the school to be allowed to go, was the key to learn the German language properly – and thus to lay the Foundation stone for the future career.
I with 11 to D came I couldn’t speak German. I’m in the 5th to high school. I kept the Abi-closing speech. https://t.co/CLo4lg29fc

I was eleven when I came to Germany, I was able to “Good day”, “bread” and maybe three other words. I am glad that I had teachers who would not have shared the opinion of Mr Linnemann. https://t.co/6ubNyXJmVt
