Today I shall be talking  about the education system in Germany 

So, welcome to Tech Daily The whole process from a child attending kinder garden until higher secondary school is what I intend to explain here For easy understanding I shall explain it in 3 sections 1. Kinder garden 2. Primary Level 3. Secondary 

Level Compulsory education starts at age 6 in Germany Until then children attend day care centers like how it is in our hometown In Germany, these are called "Kindertagesstätte" or simply Kita We can divide it into 2 types Kinderkrippe or Nursery  until age of 3 Then comes "kindergarten" or kindergarden attended by children between ages 3 and 7 Kita is not compulsory it is not a part of the public school system 

However, the advantage attending here is in addition to children learning the language they can socialize as well as preparing themselves better for school There are different types of kit as in Germany Fröbel kit as focus on a particular skill which may include arts, music etc. 2. Integrative Kit as where disabled and non-disabled children are trained together 2. 

Bilingual Kit as here, in addition to German language a secondary language is also taught Next question is how to find a kita in Germany ? We are sharing two websites with you to find a kita near your hometown 1. 2. I shall include it in the description box so that you take a look and find out one nearby. 

We now know to find a kita  there may/may not be enough  kitas around your location The best time to start looking for a kita is at least 1.5 years before your child is old enough to join kita so that you can register a place for your child Next, how expensive is Kita There are private kitas in addition to public ones These are comparatively expensive In case if a place cannot be found in kita or a place with better care is what you are looking for then 

"Tagesmutter" or Childminder is the place The advantage is that they take care of a small group not exceeding 5 children Thereby better care and attention is given In comparison to day care centers these are expensive most Childminders take care  of the children at their homes we drop our child at their home I shall include the link in the description box to find a childminder As I mentioned earlier compulsory education begins from age 6 most schools are public here and therefore 

Education is free  Also there are private schools  as well as international schools  where schools fees are to be paid School curriculum depends up on the state  same curriculum may not be followed by all states There are 16 states, each one defining their own curriculum Classes 1 - 4 are clubbed and are  known as "Grundschoole" or Primary School its until class 6 in Berlin and Brandenburg 

After completing grade 4 based on the marks obtained as well other  co curricular activities, teachers shall suggest in which secondary school may the child attend However, final decision is up to parents teachers shall only give a recommendation There are 4 types of secondary schools 1. Hauptschoole 2. Real schoole 3. Gymnasium 4. Gesamtschoole Pupils scoring below average marks in primary school come to hauptschoole it provides a basic secondary education 

Classes are from grade 5 to 9 After passing grade 9, the student gets "Hauptschulabschluss" or High School Certificate Next is Realschule Classes are from 5 to 10 Student passing 10th grade is awarded with "Mittlere Reife" or secondary school certificate Students scoring best grades in primary school come to Gymnasium  classes are from 5 to 13 There is a qualification exam after grade 13 Upon passing, the student is awarded with "Abitur" It is the highest qualification received by a student among students within the secondary education among German schools Abitur is the entry step to universities in Germany Next is 

Gesamtschule Its curriculum is a mix of the curriculum followed by the other 3 schools Again, classes here are also between 5 and 13 One gets the "Hauptschulabschluss" after passing Grade 9 or "Mittlere Reife" after completing Grade 10 or studies are continued until "Abitur" is obtained One question that may come up is the future of Hauptschule student Either the student can join a vocational course 

The duration is 2-3 years. Together with theoretical classes, practical sessions are held in a company so that upon graduating he/she can start his/her career there If the student wants to pursue higher education he/she can join at a University of Applied Science In case that the student wants to join  a university after grade 9 first join for a special course to pass Grade 10 and obtain Mittlere Reife Afterwards he/she may join  a Gymnasium or Gesamtschule In case of 

Realschule students they can join a vocational course after obtaining "Mittlere Reife" or if they want to pursue higher studies they may join a Gymnasium or Gesamtschule and continue their studies Now I shall tell you the difference between   University and University of Applied Science University focuses more towards research or more focused into Theory University of Applied Science on the other hand focuses more towards skills required by Industries in other words more practical focused Talking about 

German grading system 1.0 best; 6.0 worst  Another common question heard is whether a non German speaking student  can study in a German school such students must attend a special course its known in German as "Willkommensklasse" or "Vorbereitungsklasse" Here they shall learn the language as well as learn the German culture In this video, we wanted to give you an overview of the German Education System as well as an insight into each aspects Hope you all like this video if you did please hit the like button do share it if you find it useful let us know your opinion through comments and consider subscribing my channel if you enjoy So Christmas is here so with a Christmas vlog see you next time take care bye bye!
