On April 17 and 18, 2018, DOZ e.V. held an “Almanya in Arabic” Seminar about Life and Culture in Germany in a refugee home in Leipzig-Plagwitz. For only a few families are living there, we were working in a small, informal group, where there was room for everyone’s concerns and questions. Furthermore, the lecturer mastered an impressive balancing act between four languages or dialects: German, Arabic, Soran, and Kurmanc  After a short introduction in German history, politics, and economy, the participants could get to know each other better during a get-to-know bingo game. They were especially interested in cultural and social topics: Which behavioral rules do I have to follow in Germany? How do I build a good relationship with my neighbors? How do I find friends in school? Most of the participants have arrived to Germany a short time ago, which is why for them these questions about social relationships had a high priority. On the second day we also dealt with the question which advantages an official job has compared to an illegal job and how it can help to receive a residence permit or to find an apartment.
