FOR ADVICE If you have no previous knowledge of German, you can register here for our beginner course at level A1.1.

Placement test

If you already have knowledge of German, we offer you a placement test online as part of the course booking. After the written part of the placement test, you need to complete an oral interview with a teacher from the Goethe-Institut and you will be able to take advantage of a personal course advice. This enables you to choose the right level and the right course for you.
 

How can I take the placement test?

The placement test is carried out online and is free of charge.
You can take the placement test at a time which suits you best, but it must be done in one piece after it has started. The placement test will take about 1 hour. After the written part you will receive a separate invitation from us for an oral interview and for personal course advice.

contact AND ENROLLMENT
Please register online.
Dates and Prices
You can easily pay by credit card (Visa / Master).
Before the course starts, the Language Course Office automatically sends a welcome letter by e-mail with a link to the online course room on MeinGoethe.de.
 
The digital formats are strongly oriented towards our on-site courses. You continue to practice all skills interactively with the other course participants and your teacher. However, this is currently not done in a physical classroom, but online, depending on the type of course, on the Zoom or Adobe Connect platforms. In some places, the live sessions will be combined with the tasks on the learning platform MeinGoethe.de. In the live sessions you will mainly improve your oral skills and simulate authentic communication in a virtual classroom. You can do comfortably from home and during your usual course days and times.
For the live sessions you need a PC or laptop with internet access and, if possible, an integrated webcam and a headset (participation without these accessories is also possible). The live sessions are conducted using conference tools such as Zoom or Adobe Connect. You will receive instructions and invitations to the sessions by e-mail or via the learning platform. Please open the link about 15 minutes before the course starts and wait for your teacher to start the lesson.
In courses where a textbook is used, please also have your course and exercise book ready. You will also continue to use those.
 
If you have any questions about your course, please contact your teacher. She/he will be happy to advise you. If your teacher is unable to answer your questions, please contact our course office for all further questions:
deutschkurse-tbilissi@goethe.de
We have temporarily switched all language courses to online and blended learning formats. The face-to-face sessions of blended learning courses will also be replaced by live sessions on the Internet.
As soon as it will be possible again, lessons in our children's, youth and extensive courses will again take place at the Goethe-Institut. The live sessions of our BL courses will then also take place on-site again.
The Zoom platform is used for teaching children and young people. We also guarantee our successful teaching approach online, in which the focus is on communication: speaking, listening, reading and writing are practiced and trained in real-life situations and with authentic texts. As soon as it is possible again, the lessons will take place at the Goethe-Institut.
Should face-to-face classes at the Goethe-Institut be possible again, we would, as usual, present some teaching units to allow for an earlier end of the trimester and start of the holidays. We will inform you about this according to the ongoing development.
 
The course fee will be refunded if you withdraw before the course starts (first day of the course) minus an administration fee of 20 GEL. If you withdraw after the start of the course (on the third day of the course) no refund will be made. The Goethe-Institut reserves the right to cancel a course, if the number of participants is too low. In this case the entire course fee will be refunded.
To receive a refund of a card payment or transfer of course or examination fees, you must send the following documents to the course office by email: Identity card and bank details. Refunds of card payments/transfers will be credited to the bank account within thirty days. After the above-mentioned deadlines a refund of the course price is no longer possible.

Summer Trimester 2020

You can find the lesson plan and homework in your group's online classroom at MeinGoethe.de.
 
The confirmation of participation will be sent to you automatically by email at the end of the term. If you have not received the confirmation of participation, please write an email from your current email account to deutschkurse-tbilissi@goethe.de. We will then send the confirmation of participation to this email address.
