Course details

Similar to our general integration courses, the integration courses targeted at young adults in Berlin consist of a language course and an orientation course. The course program includes a maximum of 1,000 lessons, each lasting 45 minutes.

Language course: The language course usually consists of 900 lessons. The basic language course provides an understanding of the fundamentals of German. The courses consist of 300 lessons. The advanced German course is divided into advanced language course A followed by advanced language course B, each consisting of 300 lessons. The courses focus on topics of daily life such as going shopping, leisure activities, social contacts, the media, and healthcare topics. They will help you improve your listening, writing, and speaking skills.

Orientation course: The orientation course takes place after completion of the German course and consists of 100 lessons. Topics include German culture, politics, the legal system, and German society.

Final certificate: After finishing the language course, a certificate test takes place. The orientation course concludes with the BAMF test on “Living in Germany.” If you do not pass the final test you may have to repeat the course.

To participate in a Berlitz integration course for young adults, you will need written approval in the form of a Berechtigungsschein (certificate of eligibility). Application forms can be obtained from

  • The Foreigners’ Office (Ausländerbehörde)
  • The job center or welfare agency
  • The Federal Office for Migration and Refugees (BAMF)
  • The Federal Refugee Office (the Bundesvertriebenenamt for ethnic German resettlers)
  • Immigration advisers

If your certificate of eligibility (Berechtigungsschein) has an expiration date, contact Berlitz before that date. If you already know some German, a written Berlitz language test will be conducted before the course. This will help you select the right German course.

The course overview shows all courses and the regular course fees. Because we are a recognized provider of courses, written approval will entitle you to a subsidy of up to 100%. We will be happy to calculate the costs that will specifically apply to you.
