Learning German in Göttingen
Our institute in Göttingen
The city of Göttingen
Göttingen is a substantial city that has preserved its small-town charm. It is centrally located in Germany in the south of the state of Lower Saxony.
Of the 130,000 inhabitants, around 30,000 are students, including many from different countries all over the world. They contribute to the lively international atmosphere in the city's picturesque historic center.
Göttingen is defined by education, research and science. With four Max Planck institutes, the German Aerospace Center (DLR), the university, a private college of applied sciences and the University for Applied Sciences and Arts, Göttingen has earned the title of "the knowledge city". "The Göttingen Nobel Prize miracle" was brought about by the 44 Nobel laureates who have worked here. Flanking the academic institutions, many renowned companies in the fields of measurement and laser technology, laboratory technology, medicine, life sciences and optics have set up shop here.
Göttingen is situated on Germany' major transportation arteries and can be reached quickly and conveniently from such important urban centers as Berlin, Hamburg, Frankfurt or Munich. The airports in Frankfurt and Hanover guarantee excellent international connections.
I used to find learning German really difficult and I tried lots of different things. But on the language course at the Goethe-Institut, I suddenly started making rapid progress. Lessons were simply highly effective and tailored to the students.
