Integration Courses

Dr. Steinberg Sprachschule is a language school certified by the Federal Office for Migration and Refugees to conduct integration courses. Integration courses are German language courses that consist of 6 modules (each split into 100 lesson units over 4 weeks) from level A1 to B1. Upon reaching level B1 (module 6), you can participate in the so-called orientation course consisting of 60 lessons. The “Skalierte Deutschtest für Zuwanderer” is taken after the 6th module and attests you the level A2 to B1.

We offer the following integration courses:

  • General integration courses for adults and young people (Focus: Communication in German)
  • Orientation courses (Focus: German society and politics)
  • Intensive courses

Who can participate?

  • Immigrants
  • EU citizens
  • Ethnic German resettlers
  • Germans with insufficient knowledge of German

What do you need?

In order to participate in a course you need to have a certificate of eligibility (“Berechtigungsschein”) either from the Foreigners’ Registration Office, the Jobcenter, the Federal Office for Migration and Refugees or from the Federal Refugees Office (for resettlers).

Placement Test

At first, we carry out an assessment test to determine your German language skills. The result helps us to find out which course suits you best and whether attending a special integration course is needed.


Please bring your passport and your certificate of eligibility (“Berechtigungsschein”) or your confirmation of entitlement to unemployment benefits to the registration and the assessment test.

Feel free to contact us if you have any further questions!
