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.
