    Would you like to learn German, improve your German skills, or test your mastery of German?

    The Goethe-Institut in Washington offers general language courses, an examination preparation course and special language courses which deal with a specific topic or address a specific need of a group of learners. We offer courses at all levels throughout the year in multi-media classrooms.

    All classes are conducted in German. Instruction follows the communicative approach. The Goethe-Institut offers progressively structured courses and presents them in a friendly, comfortable atmosphere. Native speakers trained in teaching German as a foreign language provide instruction on a professional level. Along with learning the German language, students learn about social and cultural developments in Germany.

    We offer nine-week standard courses as well as 3-week intensive courses (September 2015). Our standard and intensive courses which include 36 units of instruction cost $465 (Mo - Th) and $485 (Saturdays), special courses which include 27 units of instruction (Saturdays) cost $375. All details are subject to change without notice. Our early bird registration special is valid through 2 March 2015.
