German Exams

German language exams are continuing

During the current lockdown we will continue running our German  language exams at the Goethe-Institut in London. We are keeping numbers very low to allow for social distancing and giving time for airing and cleaning rooms between sessions. To keep everyone safe some special rules will apply which will be explained to you when you book.

If you have questions, contact our Language Office.

Continue to learn German - online! We are switching our on-site courses to online courses. Choose from all of our German courses or sign up for our Online Group Courses directly.
