B1 German Intergration Class
Yesterday was a bitter sweet day for me. It was the last day of the integration class. I am happy the class is over because then I can take the Integration exam (stress) in two weeks, pass it, and move on to the next level. Here in Germany the B1 is require for work. You can work with out having a B1 if you know someone or the person or company don’t care as long as you are able to speak good Deutsch. Also you must have a B1 certification to move on to the next level which is a B2. The B2 class is way shorter than the B1. My B1 class was full time 4 hours a week Mon-Thursday for 10 months counting the holidays and so on. But in actuality I learned how to speak decent German in 9 months when you minus the holidays break. After the B2 then it is the C1 and C2. The C1 is a must if you have interest to go to an University. This states that you have no problem hearing or writing the language. This is the level I am aiming for!
Okay now that is said yesterday was great! We had a party, ate, laugh, play a vocabulary game, and dance. It was great fun. I even hugged the devil and wish her well. I told myself the past is the past. I wish everyone success in life and the Prufung (the major test in 2 weeks that tell our faith to move on or repeat the last 3 model of the class….oh I forgot to mention there are 6 models to the class and a Orientation on Politics. Each model take 1-1.5 months to complete. The Politic is a must pass but it is easy. Well for me it was. I answer a 25 Political questions test giving 45 minutes time limit and was done in 5 minutes and think I got 100%.) The Political test has it importance. When pass a person can live in Germany with their green card after one year. For me this rule does not applied I heard but I like to take precaution just in case down the road it bite me in the arse!
Enough of writing I would like to share with you a video from the party and two photos of the original group of people and the new group of people with the original. So many people every few months drop out of the class due to personal reasons.
In the photos you will see a mixture of beautiful people from Jamaica/America, Turkei, Greece, Croatia, Iran, France, Germany, Columbia, and China….if I miss any I come back later and edit them in:)
