What our course participants say
Ilaria Maria Bossi (21) from Italy"I found the lessons very interesting, fun and stimulating. The teacher used very good methods to get us speaking and to correct us. Excellent organization for leisure time activities: A variety of interesting ideas every time with helpful and courteous guides. Great parties!"
Andrés Hildebrandt Loredo (26) from Peru (doctoral student in philosophy)"For me the Goethe-Institut, with the intensive instruction and the cultural and leisure program, offers the best opportunity to learn Geman. The fact that the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) keeps sending its scholarship students to the Goethe-Institut to learn German underscores the quality of the teaching."
Ana María Fernández Aubanell (19) from Spain (student)"Bremen is a wonderful city and I feel like I'm in a fairy tale here. I've made good friends and at the Goethe-Institut I've learned that I can speak German!"
Antanas Bagdonas (50) from Lithuania (professor at a teachers college)"I started learning German back in my school days. The Goethe-Institut is a very good opportunity for me to deepen my German skills. I can tell you that the teaching methodology is very good! After just three weeks I can speak and understand others. Thank you!"
Chiharu Naganuma (22) from Yokohama, Japan"I'm taking the course 'German plus Internship'. In my home country I'm still studying and after that I want to work. I think that it is better for my career to do an internship in Germany first before I look for a job. After the course I'm going back to my home country."
Alper Özdil, Turkey, engineer, (33)“Before I came to Germany I kept trying to learn German, but without much success. At the Goethe-Institut I’ve now learned more in a short time than in all the years of trying. The methods are simply very effective and the teachers are excellent.”
Vera Karieva, Russia, student (18)“I would never have believed that learning could be so much fun. The teachers at the Goethe-Institut are really good. When I came here I was really afraid to speak German. Now that's hard for me to imagine!"
Cho Youn Je, South Korea, IT consultant (43)"I am convinced by the modern language teaching methods used at the Goethe-Institut. They really help me to get close to the German language. We have to phone a restaurant and order a table or go to the train station to find out about departure times. It's like authentic everyday life."
Mariana Moreno Villalba, Venezuela, student (19)"My choice of the Goethe-Institut was the right one. The last six months on the Intensive Course in Dresden have been full of new impressions and experiences. After classes, there is always an interesting cultural program, which pleases me very much. The German language is now integrated into my life. And I also have many opportunities to come into contact with the locals."
Ioannis Panagiotopoulos (19) from Athens, Greece"The course 'German plus Internship' is an interesting way to learn German, combined with a valuable internship. The special course and the internship are a great resource for building up my specialised vocabulary that I need for a trainee position in Germany."
Katherine Perry (18) from Newcastle in the UK"In England I spent seven years learning German – with modest success. Since I started learning at the Goethe-Institut in Freiburg, I’ve come a long way in just a few weeks."
Angelo Cassano (48) from Locarno, Switzerland"At the beginning I was surprised how many people from all over the world want to learn German here. But now I think: no wonder. Because learning and living at the Goethe-Institut are an unbelievably lively experience."
