German for Caregivers

Are you planning to work as a nurse or as a care assistant in a hospital or an elderly home in Germany? Or are already working as caregiver in Germany and would like to improve your work-related communication skills in a German language course? It is not only important to speak with patients, doctors and colleagues in your work routine, but also the written expression in order to write nursing reports in German.

Therefore, we recommend taking our German intensive course at one of our 11 Goethe-Instituts in Germany. In an intensive course you will be taught German on a daily basis from Monday to Friday enabling you to learn German goal-oriented for your job. Should you prefer to take German classes twice or three times a week, our German in the evening, German in the morning or German on the weekend courses are a perfect fit. We recommend enrolling in a general German language course up to B1 level, which prepares you well for everyday situations with patients and relatives. Starting with level B2, we offer companies tailor-made courses focusing on the specific vocabulary of German for caregivers. We can conduct this course face-to-face at our Goethe Instituts in Germany and virtually. We would be glad to advise you on building language course bridges, in which your caregivers start courses directly at our Goethe-Instituts abroad and then continue their language training here in Germany after a previously agreed level.
