deutschkurseGerman courses

There are different possibilities to learn the German language. Refugees who will most likely be able to stay in the country, can be admitted to a “Integrationskurs” (integration course) according to the “Aufenthaltsgesetz” (§ 44 Abs. 4 S. 2 Nr. 1-3 AufenthG, law on residency). The language course is part of the integration course. There are also job-related German courses, that help you to learn the vocabulary that you need in your job.

Many refugees have to overcome two difficulties at the same time: Learning how to speak german, and learning how to read and write using the latin alphabet. The literacy programme provides necessary support.

If you have just arrived in Bremen, you could ask the management of your camp / accommodation for language courses.

Language courses and integration courses are offered by institutions in all parts of Bremen.
