About me 

Glückliche Kinder mit Büchern

I, Iris Rozwora, have been living in the south of Paris for almost ten years between German precision and French serenity. For me, bilingualism is not just a theoretical concept, it is part of my everyday life.

As a mother, I understand the challenges you face when you want to pass on your native language to your child in a foreign country. After all, a language lives through the community that it creates. If this is missing, the child's motivation to acquire this language quickly decreases.

I am not only experienced as a mother, but also in my professional environment how important it is to stay in touch with the culture and other German-speaking children. I am a humanities scholar and just finished my PhD in the sociology department. From the beginning of my career I was involved in extracurricular, interdisciplinary knowledge transfer for children. I loved that work because there are no boundaries except your own imagination. Teaching children, inspiring them and encouraging them to experiment has always been my guideline, which I continued during my work in a Museum as well as in a children's university.

At the moment , I direct and design language and art workshops for German-speaking children in Paris. I experienced there how important it is to develop positive emotions and a sense of community in order to learn a language.

This is exactly where “Planet Wortschatz” can help you. Language only lives when it is spoken. Together we can pass on a piece of German language and culture to your child.
