“The fast acquisition of the German language, quick integration into the labour market, and knowledge of the German legal system, culture, and history are key factors for successful integration. In addition to governmental services, numerous online offers can help newly arrived people in our country to learn the language and to access educational opportunities. Language courses, guidance on German law, culture, and society, or specialized education portals can contribute in many ways. Project Reconnect, which bundles a number of online services and refines them for non-profit organizations, is playing a key role here. In the common interest of supporting successful and sustainable integration, I wish you all the best in this pursuit.”
