German has the most native speakers in the European Union. Alongside English, German plays a key role as a language of business and culture and provides improved opportunities on the employment market – including in Belgium!

A German certificate from the Goethe-Institut attests language skills worldwide at all levels of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR).


All Goethe-Institut examinations can also be taken by external candidates if they have the appropriate language level. Attending a preparatory course is nevertheless recommended. We will be happy to advise you!
