Language and education are important skills

Anyone wishing to build a life in Austria and contribute to society needs to speak und understand German, because you can only really participate in Austrian life if you are able to communicate with colleagues, acquaintances, and friends. This is why the ÖIF is now offering the language portal to help those trying to learn the language - no matter wether you are abroad or in Austria. The goal is your successful integration, which all of Austrian society will ultimately benefit from.
