The JLC – Language School for Children – was founded in the spring of 2003 by the Executive Directors of the GoAcademy! Sprachcaffe, Michael Rönitz and Catherine Thellier. The idea came to them as a result of their direct experience of witnessing how quickly and easily their own three sons were able to learn another language. What was started then as one language course for their three children and their friends has grown to be today a fully-functioning Language School, comprising some 150 children of different ages and backgrounds who regularly fill 20 classrooms at Grafenberger Allee 78-80 and learn or deepen their knowledge of new languages through fun games, activities and songs. The pedagogical guidelines are set by Michael Rönitz and the operations are managed by Max Maximov, both assisted by Luca Wedhorn, Samuel Rönitz and a dedicated team of native-speaking instructors.
