All schools in Germany have been closed since mid-March. This affects not only children and adolescents, but also all refugees who normally attend a language course. But especially in these difficult times it is all the more important to be able to understand the latest news and regulations and to be able to communicate with officials or doctors.


So that refugees can continue to work independently without teachers or language and reading mentors, the IQ state network in Hesse has compiled an overview with apps and online materials for general and job-related language acquisition. You can download it here:


Deutsche Welle offers entire language courses for self-learning on its homepage: Many educational videos and slowly spoken conversations complete the offer, which can be translated into 29 different languages.


Further tips and suggestions for learning German digitally, especially for students and teachers, can be found on the homepage of the IQ specialist office for job-related German:


For all teachers who are currently unable to teach language courses but want to keep their students up to date, the Klett Languages ​​publishing company provides information about digital lessons and additional instructions for their own work:


These diverse offers are available free of charge to anyone interested in continuing to learn during these Corona times and until Sprachtreff and courses have reopened. Those who prefer to work with their familiar textbooks from the German or integration course will find additional materials and digital offers from the publishers in this working aid.
