Integration courses in Hamburg
Learn and deepen the German language with experienced, empathetic inlingua trainers.
Supported German Courses
inlingua Hamburg is approved by the Federal Office for Migration and Refugees (BAMF) to conduct integration courses. Immigrants who immigrated to Germany after 01.01.2005 are obliged to take part in an integration course. The German courses at inlingua Hamburg are not only efficient and practical, they are also fun!
The integration of foreigners living lawfully and permanently in Germany into economic, cultural and social life in Germany is promoted.
In order to ensure faster integration in Germany, asylum seekers and tolerated persons with good prospects of staying have also been granted access to integration courses on application since November 2015. At present, asylum seekers from the following countries of origin can apply: Eritrea, Iraq, Iran, Somalia and Syria.
In addition to these groups of persons, citizens of the European Union (EU), spouses, partners or family members can participate in the integration courses on application.
The language goal of the integration courses is the CEFR language level B1.
