Starting May 2020 onwards, until the Institute reopens courses will take place as online live sessions instead of on-site courses.

Online learning consists of different phases:
  • You work on exercises, tasks and texts individually at home, managed and coordinated by your tutor
  • You work on written assignments which will be evaluated by your tutor
  • You meet your tutor and the other participants in online live sessions, communicate with them and learn together.
As long as the Goethe-Institut / Max Mueller Bhavan Bangalore is closed to the public, no language exams will take place. If you have already signed up for an exam that has been cancelled, you will get a refund.

Once the Institute reopens, fresh exam dates for all language levels will be announced!
Until we reopen, all library loans are automatically renewed. There will be no charges for anything on loan until that point. On reopening, we will contact you with your new return date.
