The exams offered by the Goethe-Institut are an integral part of our course system.The finishing courses of each course level (A1.3, A2.3, B1.4, B2.3, C1.4 and C2.4) prepare the student for the corresponding exam. These take place during the last week of each semester. The exam fees are not included in the price of the course and are payable when you register for the exam.
