In this course, students chose a book that they would like to study in depth during the semester.

Of course there will also be time to talk about culture, politics, history and whatever else we find of interest.

In this course we look at a wide range of cultural topics, such as literature, music, the fine arts, but also tackle questions of popular science, historical and art historical subjects. Sometimes we venture beyond the walls of the Goethe-Institute’s actual building for a gallery visit or to conduct an interview with Germans working in different contexts here in London. The participants themselves shape this course as they are welcome to suggest topics of their own interest.
This course will provide you with a chance to significantly improve your vocabulary and writing skills.

In our "Keep Up Your German" course we cover a range of topics, from current political events to literature and art as well as science and emerging cultural trends in Germany. It is for everyone who is fluent in German (C2+) and would like to speak it, take part in in depth discussions and occasionally discover one of the grammatical challenges that everyone does love so much about Goethe’s  and Schiller’s native language.
