If you want to live or work in Germany, this course is a great way to learn German quickly and intensively and to acquire the basics (A1-B1) of the German language and culture. In total, the course consists of six modules, each lasting four weeks (100 teaching units). After that, you can join an Orientation Course (a further 100 teaching units). This course, ending with the “Life in Germany” test (“Leben in Deutschland”), deals with the history, culture and laws of Germany. Depending on your country of origin, financial situation and familial status, you may qualify for financial support from the Federal Office for Migration and Refugees (Bundesamt für Migration und Flüchtlinge/BAMF).
There are three formats that all lead to the same goal: completing the B1 level. Morning Integration Courses take place daily with completion of level B1 in six months. If you want to improve quickly, have already mastered one foreign language and are accustomed to learning (you’ve recently finished school or university), we recommend our Turbo Integration Courses in the afternoon. If you are busy during the day, we recommend our Evening Integration Courses.
