In the playground Talina (11), Svenja (11) and Jason (9) can't understand a word. Because, here, their classmates only speak Turkish and Arabic. And, in class, the three explain German words to their fellow pupils.

The Jens-Nydahl-Grundschule on Kohlfurter Straße (Kreuzberg, Berlin). Here 99 per cent of the 313 pupils have an immigrant background. For 285 of those, the parents receive financial support from the state. One of many school problems that BILD has been reporting on for the last few days.

Talina is in the 6th year. "When she first went to school, she could read and write her first words. Her fellow pupils couldn't say 'Thank you', 'Please' or 'Good morning'" says her mother Mara M. (45). "The German children are teased about being 'pork eaters'" Her classmate Svenja: "I wish there were more pupils who could speak my language" Jason's mother says: "It's not good that there are so few German children at the school."

Even parents of foreign origin are concerned. Aslankara A. (35), who is Turkish, and mother of Burakcan in the sixth year: "It's a shame there are so few Germans here. It makes it difficult for our children to learn the language."

A teacher comments to BILD: "We have tried in vain to get Germans in the school. Now we're concentrating on the clientele that we have. In the canteen, there is no more pork."

The district council is indifferent to the concerns of the parents and teachers. Schools official Monika Herrmann (47, Greens): "It doesn't matter at all how many children of immigrant origin go there."
