The BSB Erwachsenenbildung introduces itself

The BSB Erwachsenenbildung is an adult school in Bremen. We offer integration and German courses for migrants as well as intensive courses for students and academics. Our family business has been providing adult education since 1989 and is now in its second generation. Since the first of January 2020, Sebastian Radtke is the managing director. In the span of our existence, we have built up an excellent reputation as a specialist for the above-mentioned German courses, which also include courses with childcare. Moreover, we offer German tests for immigrants (Deutschtests für Zuwanderer) at language level B1 (advanced language use)

What is the purpose of these adult education courses?

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.

Scope and content of the language course

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:

  • Working life
  • Raising children
  • Education and training
  • Shopping and general commerce
  • social contacts and leisure
  • sports and hygiene
  • housing
  • media use

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.

Scope and content of the orientation 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.

Completion of the courses with the B1 examination and the test “Leben in Deutschland”

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.
