Group Courses

The Goethe-Institut Boston offers standard German language courses at all levels of proficiency. Unless you are an absolute beginner (A1.1), we ask students to take our placement test to begin lessons at the appropriate course level. You can sign up for the test here. If you have no previous knowledge of German, you will automatically start at level A1.1.​
