Learning German: Where and When?

Refugium’s volunteers help learning German for everyday life (toll-free). Please contact the volunteer coordinator Dieter Jaehnke by email info@refugium-am-ruebenberge.de or call: 0176-55984620 as needed.

 

These offerings are preceding or supplementing the official language courses. We strongly recommend to regularly attend language courses run by the council or the region if you receive the offer. If you have problems following such an official course Refugium can organize a complementary support. Just contact us.

 

You find all options for learning the language in the weekly overview under Current topics & overviews”

There is a very useful visual dictionary for your first steps (visits to offices, authorities, doctors, etc.) or first contact with Germans (employees of the social welfare office, volunteers, neighbours, etc.). You can buy it (or order it) for 9,95 € in every bookstore.
