Questions about spouse immigration

9. How can I get the language certificate if there is no Goethe-Institut nearby?

You can attend courses at another language service provider, study with a private teacher or concentrate on home-study in preparation for the Goethe-Zertifikat A1: Start Deutsch 1. In addition, Goethe- Institut offers distant learning courses.

Distance learning courses

On the day of the exam date simply travel to a Goethe-Institut or to one of our examination partners. In some countries, we not only administer the Start Deutsch 1 exam at the Institut, but also at additional sites. Check with the Goethe-Institut in your country for information about the testing sites and the various language course providers.

Goethe-Institut locations abroad

In countries that do not have a Goethe-Institut or examination partner, the German embassy or consulates can give you information about how to obtain the certificate.
