The Project

Since July 2020, the Goethe-Institut has extended its pre-integration work to North Africa/Middle East and Brazil, in addition to the existing regions of South-East Europe and South-East Asia. Migrants are prepared for everyday life and the workplace in Germany while still in their home country. Programmes include courses with regional and intercultural content tailored to group needs, as well as advice and learning support programmes. Migrant workers are an increasingly important target group, as well as joining spouses.

South-East Europe: Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo, North Macedonia, Serbia, Turkey
