Integration courses serve the purpose of integration into our cultural system and consist of a language course and an orientation course. They normally comprise 700 teaching units but can be extended to 1,000 teaching units under certain circumstances. People who are experienced and strong learners can sometimes complete this integration course as an intensive course in only 430 teaching units.
In the general integration course, the language course lasts 600 teaching units, in special courses 900 teaching units and in the intensive course 400 teaching units. It covers these important topics from everyday life:
Participants also learn to write emails and letters in German, to make phone calls and to fill out forms in German, for example to apply for a job. The topics of the courses at the BSB Erwachsenenbildung Bremen can vary depending on the type of course.
The Orientation course comprises 100 hours (30 in intensive courses). It takes place after the language course and discusses political, social and cultural topics.
The B1 exam is the final exam of the courses. It is CEFR-based and based on the ALTE standards (Association of Language Testers in Europe) as set by telc GmbH, the Goethe-Institut and the TestDaF-Institut.
The test “Leben in Deutschland” is the exam that relates to the orientation course. The test contains 33 questions.
