Learn German in Germany

A German-speaking environment is a real advantage if you want to learn German effectively. That is why courses at the Goethe-Institut in Germany are combined with a stay in a guesthouse, a host family or a reduced-price partner hotel. Engaging in everyday life in Germany can make a big contribution to your German language skills. A bus ride, a shopping tour through the pedestrian zone or a visit to the cinema become small learning units.

Lessons in class take place in small groups, our competent teachers have at least 500 hours of teaching experience in German as a foreign language. If you are working a dayjob, you can attend your course in the evenings and on weekends. We have an offer for morning classes, as well. There are also special preparation courses for specific professions, like a course for lawyers in Bonn or a course for architects in Munich. Together with the other participants in the group courses you can explore the surroundings and immerse yourselves in the German language together.
 

That makes our German courses unique...

The right level, the right time

You can start your German course at the Goethe-Institut at one of six consecutive levels of expertise. From the beginner's level with the designation A1 to the Großes Deutsches Sprachdiplom (Grand German Language Diploma) at level C2, we offer courses that correspond to the six-level scale of competence of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages.

For a thorough assessment of your language level in a short time, we offer an individual placement test. There you will get a rating of your language skills and get suggestions for suitable courses. After that, you are free to choose whether you want to attend one of our classic German courses in a group, a job-related special- or intensive course, or a course on the weekend, in the evening or in the morning. For our on-site courses, we also offer accommodation and partnerships with local hotels or boarding houses.
