Requirements for participants
Our state language course “German now” is generally open to adults with a migration background. Nevertheless, certain requirements must be fulfilled in order to participate. Admission is not dependent on our country of origin, your legal status or your length of stay in Germany. However, you must be able to prove that you came from an unsafe country of origin and that you currently reside in a district or in a district-free city of the state of Saxony. Another condition to participate is that you are not allowed to take a German integration course according to § 43 of the AufenthG
“German now” is a basic course. Prior knowledge is therefore not required as basic language skills will be taught during the course. Following this, you have the possibility to deepen your knowledge through the advanced state language course “German Qualified”. However, if you already have some knowledge of the German language, it is advisable to take a placement test, which may show you that your language level is already at A1 or above. In this case it is possible to start straightaway with the advanced course.
Topics covered by state language course “German now” at MIQR in Chemnitz
The topics of the basic course “German now” are divided into two categories: Course content that teaches the German language at A1 level and course content that covers various aspects of life in Germany.
The course “German now” not only covers the basics of the German language, but also provides extensive insights into the life, culture, history and social life of Germany. This includes German working and professional life as well as information about different paths of education and training, and also information about health and hygiene standards. Housing and household management (including shopping and consumption) are further points covered. You will also learn how to raise children in Germany and acquire useful skills for social life, including tips and advice on leisure activities and maintaining contacts.
Structure of state language courses
The language courses are a combined course package, which consist of the basic course “German now” and the advanced course “German qualified”. In order to ascertain which course is suitable for you, a placement test will take place before commencement. If the test result shows that someone has little to no knowledge of the German language, the basic course ‘German now’ should be attended.
After 200 hours of instruction, you will take an A1 language test. If you pass, you will receive a confirmation of participation as well as admission to the 400 hours advanced course “German qualified”. However, if the initial placement test already demonstrates language skills at level A1, it is not necessary to take the “German now” course. Instead, you can skip the basic course and be immediately admitted to the advanced course “German qualified”. This course offers the possibility to build upon your language ability to reach the level B1. After completion of the 600 hours, the ‘German test for immigrants’ is taken. Upon passing, you will be awarded an official language certificate with which you can prove your B1 level in German.
The state language courses are divided into two course offerings, which are similar in content, but differ in their aims and scope. The basic course “German now” is designed to gradually introduce the basics of the German language. By the end you should be able to understand, speak, write, and read the German language at a basic level. In addition, “German now” should enable you to reach level A1 and be able to enter the advanced course “German qualified”.
The state language courses “German now” and “German qualified” are only provided in the state of Saxony. MIQR provides these courses at all of its locations in Saxony: Leipzig, Dresden and Chemnitz.
