Language Learning at The Federal Office for Migration and Refugees
As part of its ESF-BAMF programme, the Federal Office for Migration and Refugees (BAMF) offers courses in "German for professional purposes" free of charge to people with a migration background. The courses combine German lessons, professional skill-building and the option of finding out more about a trade or profession through work placements. In the German lessons you will learn the vocabulary, grammar and expressions that you will need to make yourself understood competently among colleagues, customers and superiors. In addition, you will also learn to understand more complicated texts, and what you must take into consieration for example when writing e-mails and letters. The German lessons will also teach you general workplace language skills. Your progress will be monitored regularly during the course. The language school will determine at the end of the course whether you have achieved your goals. You can obtain further information in your area from the Migration Advisory Service for Adult Immigrants and the Youth Advisory Service, immigration authorities, the employment agency, job centre or relevant local authority institution, and integration course providers.
