Are you new in Germany and still unsure about how things work here? Our topics will give you useful information about residence and living in Germany, such as: language and integration courses, finding work and finding somewhere to live, healthcare or arranging childcare, plus addresses for regional sources of guidance and drop-in centres. Which topic are you interested in?

One comment before we start: To make it easier to read, we often use just the masculine pronouns, but these should also be taken to imply feminine pronouns too.
