Putting people first: providing security, creating opportunities, embracing change

Catch-up course

Have you been living in Germany for some years now? Have you not had a chance so far to learn German properly and would like to do so at last now? Then attending the catch-up course could be the right decision for you.

Over 900 lessons, the catch-up course will prepare you for the linguistic demands of the labour market and life in German society. In a further 100 lessons, you will learn about the most important elements of German politics, history and culture and the country’s legal system. In addition, you will meet many people on the catch-up course who are in a similar position to you.
