German courses for all levels and schedules

The Goethe-Instituts in Germany offer the entire range of general language courses, exam preparation courses and vocational courses - for every language level and for every individual need. You choose from intensive and evening courses exactly the offer that suits your needs, possibilities and language skills. We also offer refresher courses, individual lessons and online courses.

The aim of the lessons is for you to enjoy making rapid and sustained progress in your learning and to expand your active language skills. During the learning and teaching phases, you will practise all language skills - listening, reading, writing and speaking - using topical texts, authentic speaking and writing exercises, role-plays with an everyday relevance as well as practical project and research tasks.

You can take an exam after each language level. The Goethe-Institut exams are internationally valid and recognised by many employers and educational institutions. During the course, we check your learning progress, give you well-founded feedback and prepare you optimally for your degree.
