The BAMF integration course was developed to help you get started in Germany in an uncomplicated way and by teaching relevant content. For this reason, in most cases it is also funded by the Federal Office for Migration and Refugees (abbreviation: BAMF).
inlingua, your language school in Leipzig, competently supports you on this path. Learn the most important basics about the language, history and German law together with other participants so that you can quickly feel truly at home in Germany.
With a total of 700 teaching units, you will learn during a BAMF integration course how to use the German language confidently and without uncertainty in concrete everyday situations.
You will cover the following topics, among others:
- Shopping and living
- Leisure time and social contacts
- Work and profession
- The German health system and medical appointments
- Offices and authorities
The German integration course has two goals:
- On the one hand, the aim is to improve your German language skills so that you will soon be able to master everyday situations such as shopping, filling in forms or simply having a conversation with your neighbour without any problems.
- At the same time, the curriculum includes imparting important knowledge about Germany's values, culture and history. This will help you to find your way around your new home in Germany even faster and better. In short, you will be able to integrate and make contacts more quickly!
Divided into two parts, your integration course consists of a language course and a subsequent orientation course.
In the first part, the language course, you and your fellow students concentrate fully on learning important vocabulary and grammar.
The language course is further divided into the basic and the advanced language course.
In the total of 600 teaching units (UE), you will deal with authentic topics from everyday life.
You will then be able to:
- write letters or emails in German,
- find a new flat on your own or
- apply for a job.
You have already successfully completed the language course? Congratulations!
You are now qualified to attend the second part of your BAMF integration course: the orientation course.
This comprises 100 teaching units (UE) and provides you with basic knowledge about life in Germany.
In teaching useful everyday knowledge, the focus is on these questions, among others:
- What do I need to know about the German legal system?
- What important events are part of German history and culture?
- What is the importance of values such as tolerance or equal rights for men and women in Germany?
- What rights, but also what obligations, do I have when I live in Germany?
