Learn German, experience Germany – New integration courses begin at the ISK at the start of every month. You have the choice between general integration courses and courses teaching you how to read and write. All courses end with an orientation course and the final LiD (Leben in Deutschland = Living in Germany) examination and the DTZ (German Test for Immigrants).

Evaluation | Placement

Regardless of whether you already speak German or have no German language skills at all, whether you’ve already been living in Germany for quite some time or have just arrived, we offer you integration courses for all language levels. Every participant is invited to take a placement test free of charge, which ensures that you get the course that corresponds to your current language skills. We can help you to fill out your application, to apply for a costs exemption and will answer your questions regarding travel costs.

Migration Counseling

We offer special counseling once a week in cooperation with the migration advising offices of the region of Hannover, the AWO, the Caritas, the Diakonisches Werk and the national team of Germans from Russia.
