Programmes for women

We can help you if you are living in Germany and have a lot of questions about life here and would also like to learn the language. You can learn German at special women’s courses and tackle issues concerning

  • planning your life
  • everyday life
  • family
  • health
  • kindergarten
  • school.

You will get to know other women and can make useful contacts (e.g. with clubs, schools, authorities or other local institutions).

The courses target foreign women who have been living in Germany for some time, as well as recent arrivals. They each comprise 20 lesson hours, and are free of charge in most cases. You can attend a maximum of five courses.

display as attention: Important information

You do not need any prior knowledge to attend the women’s courses.Your female teacher will discuss the content of the courses with you and you will determine the pace at which you learn. The course leader often comes from a migrant background herself and can therefore support you based on her own experience.

Wichtige Mitteilung


There have been several occasions very recently in which people have pretended to be employees of the Federal Office and asked for an interview at which they questioned asylum applicants intensively. This took place in some cases on the pretext that a second hearing was allegedly needed. Important: The Federal Office does not conduct home visits! These individuals do not work for the Federal Office. The Federal Office has therefore filed criminal charges. If something similar happens to you, or if you observe anything of this nature as a carer, please report this to your local police station.Interviewers from reputable survey institutes who are currently conducting interviews as part of research projects in which data are collected on a voluntary basis clearly state who they are working for. They also give the name of the survey institute and prove this by showing the appropriate documentation. This means that you can make enquiries should you have any doubts.
