Young Goethe Scheme

Our Young Goethe Scheme offers primary and secondary school German teachers in the UK the opportunity to invite Young Goethe Ambassadors into their classrooms to motivate younger students to learn German. You can also book a Young Goethe presentation at the Goethe-Institut in London or Glasgow. 

Advanced German learners at A-Level or university level can apply to become Young Goethe Ambassadors, giving them the opportunity to pass on their passion for German while developing professional and personal skills.  

Young Goethe Scheme goes hybrid!

Young Goethe Scheme vistits can take place either online or in-person at your school or at the Goethe-Institut in London or Glasgow. As always, visits will be tailored to the needs of your students.
