BAMF Integration Course: Get a foothold with Learn and Speak Leipzig
The BAMF integration course was developed to help you get started in Germany in an uncomplicated way and by teaching relevant content. Therefore, in most cases, it is also sponsored by the Federal Office for Migration and Refugees (abbreviation: BAMF).
Learn and Speak, your language school in Leipzig, supports you competently on this path. Learn along with other participants the most important basics about language, history and German law, in order to quickly feel at home in Germany.
During a BAMF integration course, which includes a total of 700 lesson units, you will learn how to use the German language in concrete everyday situations with confidence.
You will cover the following topics, among others:
- Shopping and living
- Leisure time and social contacts
- work and profession
- the German health system and visits to the doctor
- Offices and authorities
What do I learn in a BAMF integration course?
The German integration course has two goals:
- On the one hand, it is about improving your German language skills so that you will soon be able to master everyday situations such as shopping, filling out forms, or simply having a conversation with your neighbor without any problems.
- At the same time, the curriculum includes imparting important knowledge about Germany's values, culture and history. As a result, you will find your way around your new home in Germany even faster and better. In short, you will be able to socialize and integrate faster!
Divided into two parts, your integration course consists of a language course and a subsequent orientation course.
The language course
In the first part, the language course, you and your fellow students will concentrate fully on learning important vocabulary and grammar.
The language course is further divided into the basic- and advanced language courses.
Within a total of 600 teaching units (UE), you will deal with authentic topics from everyday life.
Afterwards, you will be able to:
- write letters or e-mails in German,
- find a new apartment on your own or
- apply for a job.
The Orientation Course
You have already successfully completed the language course? Congratulations!
You are now qualified to attend the second part of your BAMF integration course: the orientation course.
This comprises 100 lesson units (UE) and provides you with basic knowledge about life in Germany.
In teaching useful everyday knowledge, the focus is on these questions, among others:
- What do I need to know about the German legal system?
- What important events are part of German history and culture?
- What importance do values such as tolerance or equal rights for men and women have in Germany?
- What rights, and obligations, do I have when I live in Germany?
The orientation course ends with the Test "Leben in Deutschland". The certificate is a prerequisite for naturalization.
Do you have questions about your BAMF integration course? Please do not hesitate to contact us. We are looking forward to hearing from you!
How do I know what my language level is?
Many of our participants are not sure what their language level is at the beginning of a language course.
Do you want to start learning German from scratch? Or did you already have German lessons in school, but don't know how much you can really remember? No problem!
Before you start your BAMF integration course, we will conduct a placement test with you. Please contact us to schedule an appointment for the test.
This is completely free of charge or obligation!
The result shows you and us exactly where you stand linguistically. This way, we can be sure to choose the right module for you, so that you can get off to a smooth and successful start with your German course in Leipzig.
How can I participate in the integration course?
You need an entitlement ("Berechtigung") to participate in the integration course. This can be issued by the BAMF, Jobcenter, Aliens' Registration Office or Social Welfare Office.

BAMF Integration Course: All information on costs and financial aid!
The German government offers people who want to learn German a variety of options for financial support for different language courses.
This includes the BAMF integration course. This means that under certain conditions you can participate either free of charge or at least at a reduced rate.
What do I need to participate in the BAMF integration course free of charge?
If you have an obligation ("Verpflichtung") from the Job Center or the Social Welfare Office, you can attend the integration course free of charge. If you have an obligation from the Aliens' Registration Office, or an entitlement ("Berechtigung") from the BAMF, participation is only free of charge for you if you own a Leipzig Pass or receive one of the following: Bürgergeld, Arbeitslosengeld I or Wohngeld.
It is necessary to apply for cost exemption.
How do I receive a price reduction for participation?
If you have an entitlement to attend the BAMF integration course, you only pay €2.29 per teaching unit for participation.
This means that you will have costs of 229.00 € per module, which consists of 100 lesson units (UE). The entire integration course, however, comprises 700 lesson units (UE). After successfully completing the "Deutsch-Test für Zuwanderer" and the test "Leben in Deutschland", it is possible to apply to the BAMF for a refund of 50% of the course fees already paid.
