Welcome to Hannover!

Literacy course for labour immigrants from Bulgaria.

There are about 6000 Bulgarians living in Hannover. As European citizens they have come to work and live in Germany. A considerable percentage of them have very low levels of literacy, in addition to lacking command of German language. VHS Hannover tried to find a way to offer literacy training for them taking into account their special needs in terms of time, place, and social setup. This was eventually achieved through a cooperation with a local NGO with good contacts into the Bulgarian community in Hannover, and through a teacher with similarly good connections. These elements were crucial for the success of the project, as they ensured trust.

Introtext Deutsch:

In Hannover leben etwa 6000 Bulgar*innen. Als EU-Bürger*innen steht es ihnen frei, nach Deutschland kommen. Sie arbeiten in vielerlei, nicht zuletzt auch in hochqualifizierten Berufen. Doch ein gewisser Teil der Zugewanderten verfügt nur über sehr geringe Lese- und Schreibkenntnisse und hat auch wenig Chancen, die deutsche Sprache systematisch zu lernen. Mit dem hier beschriebenen Pilotprojekt schuf die VHS Hannover für diese Personengruppe eine Lerngelegenheit für Lesen, Schreiben und deutsche Sprache, die ihre besonderen Bedürfnisse in Bezug auf Zeit, Ort und soziales Umfeld berücksichtigt. Dies gelang durch enge Kooperation mit einem örtlichen Verein, der sich speziell der Förderung bulgarischer Kultur widmet und vertrauensvolle Kontakte auch zu weniger gebildeten Landsleuten pflegt. Die Vertrauensbasis war entscheidend für den Erfolg des Projekts. Ebenso wichtig war, dass der Kurs in direkter Wohnortnähe angeboten wurde.
