I have difficulty with the German language. Are there also German language classes for parents?


There are language and integration courses offered for a variety of people. For example, there are special integration courses for parents to improve your German language skills, connect you to local schools and teachers and teach you about the education system in Germany .

Furthermore, there are part-time courses, intensive courses and special courses for women. In some cities the course “Mama lernt Deutsch” specifically addresses non-German speaking mothers of children in elementary school or Hauptschule. If you would like to take part in one of them apply at your local foreigner’s registration office if you are a non-EU citizen or at the Federal Office for Migration and Refugees (Bundesamt für Migration und Flüchtlinge) if you are an EU-citizen. There are also many more courses for example offered by Goethe-Institut in Germany and abroad, by your local Volkshochschule and by language centers. To find suitable courses you can search here. You can also try out online courses such as “Ich will Deutsch lernen”.
