Integration courses

The aim of the course is to support the integration and social participation of immigrants. This is achieved by:

  • The orientation course with 100 UE *.

In the language course, the participants learn the German language up to level B1 of the Common European Framework. In this way, they are able to cope with everyday life.

In the orientation course, the participants receive information about the legal order, history and culture of Germany. In addition, the participants learn in an orientation course which values are particularly important in Germany.

If necessary, a visit to a special integration course is recommended.

Final test

The language course ends with the “German Test for Immigrants” (DTZ), the orientation course with the test “Living in Germany” (LiD). Participants who have successfully passed both tests will receive the “Certificate Integration Course”.

If you do not pass the language despite a proper course, you can repeat a maximum of 300 hours of the language course and participate again free of charge.

Literacy courses

Literacy courses are aimed at migrants who ( the Latin alphabet or in general) can not read or write enough and therefore need special (written) language and methodological-didactic support at the beginning of the language acquisition process. The target group mentioned is composed of three main groups which are taught jointly:

– Primary illiterates (without literacy skills)

– Functional illiterates (more or less basic skills – competencies in reading and writing, but not sufficient to attend a general integration course or an integration course for other special target groups)

– Secondary learner (already alphabetized in a non-Latin alphabet)

In the literacy course it is aimed at coming very near to the aim of the functional literacy of the participant and at providing at the same time German knowledge, at strengthening the social integration ability of the participant by autonomy supporting and in lastingness oriented teaching methods, at acquiring German knowledge at the level of the elementary language use (according to the GER), as a rule up to the level A2 and if necessary, in addition.
