The cultural center acts primarily as a meeting place, venue and as a central contact point for the Germans from Russia. It advises and supports cultural professionals of the target group and documents their history.

With ever-changing exhibitions, readings and lectures, the centre would like to give an insight into the history and culture of the Germans from Russia, to raise awareness of the fate of this now very large ethnic group.

For more information on their goals and activities, please visit their website.

Most immigrants will experience their children learning English faster than they do. They may also experience children replying in English while they speak their mother tongue to them. Why?
Because children want to fit in with their peers – desperately – and because they hear English so much more.

This very brief guide “Raising Children Bilingually” should answer the most important questions about raising children with two languages. The information sheet “Raising children with more than one language: Friends say we should!” along with a section of important Questions & Answers is a more detailed guide for parents about what to do!
