Our German courses for your employees

Your employees will be taught by our highly qualified Goethe teachers and will learn German efficiently and in a targeted manner. This will help them to get by quickly and easily in Germany, both in the workplace and in everyday life.

Learn German at your level
The Goethe-Institut locations across Germany offer you German courses at all levels: from A1 to C2. Up to level B2, we recommend your employees take our general German language courses before continuing from level C1 with learning their work-related, specialised language.

Anytime and anywhere
Depending on when and where your employees are available, you can choose between online and face-to-face courses as well as blended learning courses that combine face-to-face and online phases. That means the right course format for everyone is available and we ensure that learning German can be optimally integrated into their everyday working life.

Success in black and white
In order for your employees to soon be able to proudly hang up their Goethe certificate above their desk, we regularly offer the opportunity to take a German exam at the levels A1 to C2. Our internationally recognised German exams offer you reliable proof of the quality of the German knowledge your employees have acquired and are a practical way of rounding off their qualifications.

Die Begrüßung stellt häufig die erste Hürde da beim Umgang mit neuen Sprachen und Kulturen.

By taking the Ready for Work German course, your employees will improve more than just their language skills. In particular, we focus on professional vocabulary, widespread language barriers in the world of work and cultural aspects of German communication.More information here
