The most important step to feel at home in your new country is to learn its language. Integration courses are language and orientation courses especially for immigrants. The integration course consists of a language course with 600 periods and a short orientation course. The latter provides information about living in Germany e.g. about Germany’s legal system, its culture and history. Furthermore in Oldenburg there are integration courses especially for women, young people or persons who can’t properly read or write yet. For people without means the participation at the integration course is free of charge or very low-cost.
