    Integration course: the first step into German society

    If you are seeking asylum in Germany, it is essential that you learn the basics of the German language as quickly as possible. Knowing German is essential to communicating with locals in everyday situations, making social contacts, and searching for a job. The integration course at IQ is the first step to a smooth integration in Germany since it combines both language skills and a general orientation to life in Germany. Migrants taking an IQ integration course not only acquire the basic language skills to survive, but also about the rights and duties of everyone living in Germany, the basics of German law and order, and German culture

    Don't just learn the German language, also get to know what life is like in Germany

    The integration course places a great emphasis on teaching Germany's essential values like religious freedom, tolerance, and equality. The integration course covers all of the important topics: work and careers, education and training, shopping and consumption, health and hygiene, the care and upbringing of children, free time and making social contacts, media and their usefulness, and housing. You will also learn to write letters and emails and how to apply for a job. In addition, we also offer integration courses that introduce you to reading and writing in the Latin alphabet. Our integration courses are available on a full-time or a part-time basis. Once you successfully conclude the course, you will be ready to take the telc exam at level B1

    Integration courses sponsored by the BAMF

    Our integration course is recognized and funded by the BAMF. The introductory course is free for asylum seekers from Syria, Eritrea, Iran, and Iraq and the Federal Employment Agency covers the cost. The integration course can also be taken without the BAMF subsidy. You will then just need a residence permit or BüMA (certifying your petition for asylum). The regular integration course is free under certain conditions; otherwise, the only cost is just €1.20 per lesson. For more information about the integration course and the subsidy eligibility certificate, please contact the BAMF. Our tip: earning an integration course certificate also facilitates the naturalization process. If you can document successful participation in an integration course, you can apply for German citizenship after seven years' lawful residence in Germany. Feel free to contact us at your local IQ for a personal consultation about funding, the requirements for participating in an IQ integration course, and, of course, to register. Lay the foundation today for your participation in German society and get a smooth start to life in Germany with an IQ integration course. We looking forward to getting to know you!
