German Courses

Please select the type of course that interests you. You can choose from our regular standard courses or our shorter intensive courses. If you have any questions, we will be happy to advise you.

Courses with special topics are also offered on a regular basis. Classes can also be customized upon request for companies or small groups or individuals.

If you cannot attend a regular classroom course on site, online courses are a good alternative.

Did you know that all registered Goethe-Institut Chicago students are invited to attend our conversation groups and to come to our Semester Parties?
