German language students interested in the job-related language training courses must first attend a consultation with the office responsible for them: this may be either the Job Centre or the Employment Agency, depending on personal circumstances. If you are unsure who the appropriate contact is for you, please get in touch with us; we can identify the correct office for you. They will then let you know if you are entitled to take part in one of these courses.

If you receive authorisation, it is valid for 3 months. Once you have submitted your authorisation to Sprachenakademie, you have 4 weeks to begin taking a course. If no free spaces are available, Sprachenakademie is obliged to point you towards other language schools.

* The scope of each course and the number of teaching units per day may vary slightly due to the latest regulations. We follow the applicable rules of the BAMF for the conduct of lessons.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to the current official hygiene and distance rules of the government, many of our courses take place online or must be postponed.
