The “Basler Kurszentrum für Menschen aus fünf Kontinenten" (K5) offers a “Deutsch SOFORT für Neuzuziehende in Riehen und Bettingen” course twice a year for foreigners from non-German-speaking countries. The courses are always given in spring and autumn. People who have just moved here can take the course for free with the Basel-Stadt voucher. Each course lasts 6½ weeks and is held in the morning from Monday to Thursday.
Childcare is available alongside the courses, which gives parents an opportunity to have their children looked after for a fee during the course. Children are introduced to the German language in the form of games while being looked after.
