Differentiated system for the integration course

The German state supports eight types of integration courses, which leads to a differentiated course system. The most frequently attended course is the general integration course, which in the standard case comprises 700 hours of instruction (in the usual duration of 45 minutes each). 600 of these teaching hours include language acquisition, 100 teaching hours are allotted to the orientation course. The integration course can be extended or, in the case of particularly good skills, shortened.

Language course

In the language course you will acquire German language skills at CEFR level B1 (CEFR = Common European Framework of Reference). With this level, you can cope with most everyday situations. For comparison: students reach this level in English classes in the 9th to 10th grade. Before reaching the B1 level, you will take the levels A1 and A2, which teach elementary language use.

You will acquire German language skills in these areas up to level B1:

  • Living
  • Shopping
  • Health
  • Child care and education
  • mobility
  • Work and education

The content was developed by the Goethe-Institut, which occasionally adapts it to new requirements.

Orientation course

Following language acquisition, the last component of the integration course in Bremen is the orientation course, which lasts 100 hours. Topics include the German culture and legal system, the history of our country, our most important constitutional principles, our religious diversity and tolerance as well as the equal position of women, men and persons who do not assign themselves to a clear gender. The orientation course is designed to familiarise you with our social values.
