Integration Course for Imams

28.06.2011
Ten Turkish Imams completed their 10-months training at the Goethe-Institute in Göttingen (Lower Saxony) on Monday (27.06.2011). The training was part of the integration project “imams for Germany”, which is funded by the Federal Office for Migration and Refugees and the Turkish-Islamic Union (DITIB). As foreign imams are often criticised for their lack of German language skills, a particular focus of the training was on language acquisition. Furthermore, the imams received information about life in Germany and German society, to better understand and advise Muslims in Germany.
