Competent support in the field of skilled labour immigration
The Goethe-Institut is on hand to support your company in both the onboarding process and with the language training needs of your employees – in Germany, abroad or during the immigration phase. We offer high-quality general language learning concepts and tailor-made training opportunities, as well as integration and inter-cultural training.
German Courses: Individuals
The Goethe-Institut offers a variety of ways to learn German – be it online or in person. You can choose between intensive, individual, evening and weekend courses. Depending on individual preferences, time flexibility, intensity or location independence can be prioritised.
In our job-specific language courses, your employees will acquire German skills relevant to their job, so that they can quickly find their way around their job and everyday life in Germany. The courses build on existing language skills, and can be taken from level B2.
In addition to an individual registration option for your professionals, we also offer your company the possibility of registering closed groups under the condition of a homogeneous language level. The general language courses take place in person at a Goethe-Institut in Germany of your choice, or online. If required, we will furnish you with an offer tailored to the needs of your professionals. We take into account your time preferences and your wishes regarding the course’s intensity.
The “Goethe-Zertifikat” is an internationally recognised proof of your German language skills, and is accepted by employers and educational institutions as proof of qualification. This can be taken at all language levels.
The Goethe-Institut offers job-specific tests to determine the language level of your employees. The results can be used as a basis for further training opportunities or serve as proof of German language skills relevant to the profession.
If your company is paying the costs of the language course, please register your employees using our registration form. You can enter the address of your company as the invoicing address on the form.
If your employees are paying for the language course themselves, each employee can book the course themselves via our online shop.

There is generally no limit. Since our German course in the evening lasts between 8 or 12 weeks, we recommend not booking more than three of these courses in a block.
In order to complete level B2 as an A1 beginner, we recommend attending seven German in the evening courses. In order to complete level B2 with previous knowledge at B1 level, we advise attending three evening courses. A clear overview of our course system can be found here.
At the end of a language course, it is possible to take an internationally recognised certificate exam for the Goethe B2 certificate.
Being able to use the language independently is essential for fluent language skills in both oral and written communication in everyday working life. We recommend attending German courses until completion of level B2.
