The key to successful integration is to learn the language of the country of settlement. Finding out about the country's culture and history - and above all about the people - is another important step towards feeling "at home". Speaking German will open doors in social terms, for example, or will bring new educational opportunities and enhanced job prospects. Integration and language courses in Marl offer migrants a good basis on which to build and live an active and independent life in the town. Information on the various courses and contact people can be found under "Integration courses" and "Language courses".
Marl town council and various social organisations operate various courses and support programmes for migrants, with leisure activities and counselling services designed to enable and facilitate integration. The services and contact details are listed under "Education and leisure facilities" and "Public authorities, advisory centres, organisations".
All the information is available in German.
