To take an exam at the Goethe-Institut Ottawa, you do not necessarily have to be enrolled in one of our courses. You can either sign up for a group appointment with given dates or arrange a one-on-one appointment for a 50% surcharge.  
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.

We will be offering in July our Goethe-Zertifikat exams. For further questions and to sumbit your exam request, please contact:
