BAMF Integration Course: Getting a Foothold with LaS Dessau

The BAMF Integration Course was developed to make your start in Germany uncomplicated and facilitate your integration through the provision of relevant content. Therefore, in most cases, it is supported by the Federal Office for Migration and Refugees (BAMF).

LaS, your language school in Dessau, competently supports you on this journey. Together with other participants, you will learn the essential basics of language, history, and German law to quickly feel at home in Germany.

With a total of 700 teaching units, the BAMF Integration Course will enable you to confidently and without uncertainties apply the German language in specific everyday situations.

You will cover the following topics, among others:

  • Shopping and housing
  • Leisure activities and social contacts
  • Work and occupation
  • German healthcare system and doctor visits
  • Authorities and offices


What will I learn in a BAMF Integration Course?

The German Integration Course has two objectives:

  • Improving your German language skills to handle everyday situations such as shopping, filling out forms, or having a conversation with your neighbor effortlessly.
  • Providing you with important knowledge about values, culture, and history of Germany. This will help you navigate your new home country of Germany more quickly and effectively. In short, you will be able to integrate faster and establish connections!

Your Integration Course consists of two parts: a language course and an orientation course.


The Language Course:

In the first part, the language course, you and your classmates will focus entirely on learning important vocabulary and grammar.

The language course is divided into the basic language course and the advanced language course.

During a total of 600 teaching units, you will engage with authentic topics from everyday life.

After completing the language course, you will be able to:

  • Write letters or emails in German
  • Independently find a new apartment
  • Apply for a job position


The Orientation Course:

Have you successfully completed the language course? Congratulations!

This qualifies you to attend the second part of your BAMF Integration Course: the orientation course.

The orientation course consists of 100 teaching units and provides you with fundamental knowledge about life in Germany.

Some of the key questions addressed in the course include:

  • What do I need to know about the German legal system?
  • What are the significant events in German history and culture?
  • What is the importance of values such as tolerance or gender equality in Germany?
  • What rights and obligations do I have as a resident of Germany?

If you have any questions regarding your BAMF Integration Course, please do not hesitate to contact us. We look forward to assisting you!

How do I know my language proficiency level?

Many of our participants are unsure about their language proficiency level when starting a language course.

Are you starting to learn German from scratch? Or have you had some German lessons during your school years but are unsure about how much you remember? No problem!

Before you begin your BAMF Integration Course, we will conduct a placement test with you.

This test is completely non-binding and free of charge.

The result will indicate your current language level and help us determine the appropriate module for you.

This way, you can start your German course in Dessau successfully and directly.
