- If you have no prior knowledge of German, then please enroll into an A1.1 beginners’ course online.
- If you already have some knowledge of German and would like to find out which course level is the most suitable for you OR if you stopped studying at Goethe-Institut Hongkong more than 6 months ago, please book an appointment for our placement test online.
Or you have taken a German course at Goethe-Institut Hongkong more than six months ago?
Then we kindly ask you to take our placement test. The process to assess your current proficiency level in German consists of two parts:
1. An online written placement test that we ask you to do at home before
2. An oral interview with a teacher at the institute.
The placement test costs 100 HKD. If you sign up for one of our language courses within 4 months after the placement interview, the 100 HKD placement fee will be deducted from your course fee.
