Learn German with the pros: the Goethe-Institut Hongkong offers 9-week extensive courses at levels A1 - C2 throughout the year once a week at lunchtime, in the evening or at the weekend as well as 3-week summer intensive and super intensive courses in July and August.

Our 9-week extensive German courses with on-site instruction in the classroom are intended for beginners and advanced learners aged 16 years old or above. Learn German and find out more about everyday topics of current interest relating to Germany and German-speaking countries in our courses at levels A1 to C2.

Our lunchtime express courses are aimed at busy people who want to use their break productively and to learn German more efficiently in a small group setting.

The combination of classroom instruction and online learning gives you flexibility and a higher degree of independence in terms of time and location.

Through online activities, you will learn individually and independently with personal support from your classroom teacher.

The blended learning courses are particularly suitable if your place of residence is far away from our institute location, or if you have difficulty scheduling the time for a pure classroom course.
