Anyone who has ever visited a country whose language they does not speak knows how uncomfortable and helpless that can feel. This is the day to day and ongoing experience for our refugees.

Our “Language Support” group is dedicated to the task of offering refugees German language courses as soon as possible. Our mentors also arrange appropriate contacts with volunteers who offer teaching support, tutoring and practice in the use of everyday German, in situations like shopping in a supermarket

Due to the many different languages often spoken in refugee accommodation, lessons can sometimes be difficult, but each meeting and each lesson moves us forward. All involved know that language competence is the most important building block for rapid and successful integration.

We thereby create positive conditions for accredited refugees to participate in integration courses provided by the Job Centre or the Employment Agency at a later time. Above all, we create opportunities for refugees to participate in our society – an extremely important task.
