DiaLOG-IN in English

What is DiaLOG-IN?

You want to learn German, but feel overwhelmed by traditional language courses?

You barely find the strength to learn a new language?

Or:

Are you a person with disability and want to learn basic German by doing the things you like?

Then try our language and orientation courses that allow you to learn at your own speed, with your own goals and in a relaxed atmosphere.

DiaLOG-IN courses are specially designed for refugees with a disability or refugees that suffer from a trauma. 

We currently offer two courses.

Basic German language course:

DiaLOG-IN courses teach by creating “comprehension experiences”.

The instructors use visual aids and focus attention on key vocabulary. They speak slowly, emphasize key words and simplify vocabulary and grammar. No production is forced – students will use German when they are ready. The calm setting and small groups allow the instructors to support students individually. The curriculum is set at the beginning of the course by students and instructors.

At the end of the 10-week-course you will have basic knowledge in German that will enable you to join further language courses, for example at a ‘Volkshochschule’.

Orientation course for persons with a disability:

You will get orientation and learn German key words by performing basic daily activities in a small group of students. At the beginning of the course you choose (familiar) activities you’d like to perform (drinking tea, cooking, handicraft work and others). During the course you are individually supported by instructors and learn German key words while practicing an activity in a group of students.   

The goal of the course is to support persons with disabilities to participate in German society, enable intercultural exchange, build trust and make it easier for refugees with a disability to start over in Germany.
