Current Course Offerings

Most course options are conducted entirely in virtual classrooms. Please do not use the "format" filter below, use only the "location" filter to find in-person courses. Only courses with a location of Goethe-Institut Boston are held in-person at 170 Beacon Street.

To participate in virtual class meetings, you must use: headset/headphones, desktop or laptop computer, internet speeds of at least 3 mbps, and mastery of basic computer functions (copy/paste, etc.). 

Mobile devices cannot be used for class; Chrome is the most compatible browser for the learning platform.

Students who cannot meet the virtual course criteria are welcome to attend our in-person options.
