The German Integration courses
We believe as a language school that everybody who wants to work and live in Germany, has to master the German language. Everything you need to know about Germany, its people, its history, its culture and its laws, can be studied in our courses. Every German Integration course consist out of a language course and an orientation course. The total amount of hours for the entire course is 700 hours. The language course contains 3 basic courses and 3 advanced courses. After a total of 600 hours, the German Integration course can be concluded with a “German test for immigrants” on a A2/B1 level. The orientation course lasts 100 hours and includes the topics politics, history and cultural diversity in Germany.
Alpha Plus is an educational institution in Darmstadt and Dieburg, which offers Integration courses under different formats. It is the first educational institution, which has offered Integration courses continually since 2009 in the town of Dieburg and its communes. The central management goal of Alpha Plus is the support of migrants through language acquisition as well as social and cultural education.

Successful learning means for us the extension of the linguistic, personal and social competence. Successful learning can be shown when the participant of a course starts to confidently and successfully communicate throughout their daily life in Germany and even start to increase their communication skills. Besides that has successful learning for Alpha Plus the aim to achieve an ability to work. The acquired language skills throughout the course should be practically remembered. Successful learning means that the learners can orientate themselves in the German society with a high degree of independence and security, so that they can become part of it. Our school believes in the fact that successful learning prevents Isolation and promotes Integration.
The visible verification of a successful learning process can be seen from a prosperous exam on the B1 level (requirement for a citizenship test).
The requirement for successful learning is the creation of an exciting and encouraging learning situation. Learning works out when the learning stimuli are in a good relationship to the individual opportunities, so that mental underload as well as mental overload do not occur. That is the reason why the exact categorisation of a learner as well as the flexible switching between the courses at Alpha Plus have such a high importance.
