Language Courses

You are living in Germany now and therefore you should learn German, too. You have to master German in order to get to know new people, to get along in every day life and to find a job. Language is the key to success for integration.

Integration course

Each Integrationskurs (integration course) consists of a language course and an orientation course. The integration course takes 660 hours in total.
Whether or not a migrant is entitled to attend an integration course is decided by the Ausländerbehörde respectively the Bundesamt für Migration und Flüchtlinge. An own contribution of 1,55€ per lesson has to be paid by the student. If you receive social benefits, a cost exemption can be granted to you. Customers of the Jobcenter can apply for a cost bearing of the teaching material, too.

The Ausländer- und Integrationsbüro will give you general information about the integration courses.
