Many of our employees and volunteers have been helping refugees since 2015. We noticed that many of our refugee friends and acquaintances, despite completing a B1 course, are not yet able to speak German well enough to actively participate in society. The failure rate in the state integration courses is also very high. This significantly affects their options from finding a job to friendships with Germans and generally for integration. That is why we started offering free German courses based on the language learning method of “growing integration” in January 2020. The method is very interactive. In general, our participants are people who find it difficult to keep up with the state integration courses. 

Thank you for your support!
