Being a parent in Austria? Challenge accepted!

This joint project of Austria for beginners and Linguamulti explores the challenges expat parents face in Austria not only in terms of day care and the peculiarities of the Austrian school system, but also raising their children in multilingual environment.

Seminars will be held in English and in Bulgarian languages.

Conversational German Meet Up

You don’t have to speak German to live in Austria, but it certainly helps! Once a month we bring people together and help them overcome their fear of speaking German while having some small refreshments.

#IspeakÖsterreichisch

Many people who have studied German prior their moving to Austria experience the shock of not actually understanding what Austrians say to them. Worry not, you are not alone (and not a moron)! Austrian German has its peculiarities and we want to familiarize you with them. Follow us on Facebook and expand your vocabulary with our weekly feature.

Mentoring program

One of the most common stereotypes when it comes to foreigners is that they are unskilled and unqualified, and they aim to take advantage of the social system. To change the conversation, we are launching our mentoring program in March 2018! Professionals with migrant background who have found their way in Austria already will guide those who haven’t been that lucky yet through practical advices, one on one meetings and sharing know-how in their respective area.
