"Arriving in Germany"

The Goethe-Institut information centers


With the “Arriving in Germany” project, the Goethe-Institut wants to offer a contact point for the first time in Germany at several locations. The “Info Houses” provide information in 30 different languages about the services offered by the federal government and enable networking with regional institutions and initiatives.

Integration for new immigrants should become easier. It’s not just about young immigrants, but about middle-aged or older people.

Where can I have my professional qualification recognized? How do I gain a professional foothold? Who will help me with the recognition of my degree? Why can’t I go back to work in my previous job straight away? What options are there if I have no vocational training but would like to work here?

The Infohaus helps to improve German language skills with digital exercises and games. It also provides information on everyday and professional life in Germany. It offers answers to key questions and provides specific information about social events in Germany.

The aim of the project is to provide orientation in everyday life when looking for training and work in Germany. This and other information is also available on the internet portal “Mein Weg nach Deutschland”.

A project for people, regardless of whether they have come to Germany for professional or private reasons. The flyers provide information on where to turn for various questions. A pinboard in the city library allows initiatives to post offers for German learners and present themselves with flyers.

The Goethe-Institut also offers numerous Links for teachers and teaching assistants on its homepage.

The contact person in Radolfzell for initiatives and opportunities to help with integration and learning the new language is the municipal integration and refugee officer Dunia Binder.

There are also links to regional initiatives, offers of help and friendly institutions. The project is an initiative of the Goethe-Institut, is supported by the European Integration Fund (EIF) and co-financed by the Asylum, Migration and Integration Fund (AMIF).
