From the 30th November till 18th December the Goete-Institut Chicago will reopen their doors for school classes!
During your 60-minute visit to the Goethe-Institut, we offer your students a program conducted in simple German (English can also be used if necessary). It includes a brief introduction to the work of the Goethe-Institut and an interactive country studies program featuring the new Deutschlandcollage.
Combine your visit to the Goethe-Institut Chicago with a visit to the Chicago Christkindlmarkt! This opens daily at 11:00 AM.
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic in 2020 Goethe-Institut Chicago offered virtual programming for classes. During their "stay" at Goethe-Institut students from all over the midwest were given a virtual introduction to the Goethe-Institut and then guided through an interactive program by Hanna Kuhn and Christina Pick and introduced to the different realities of life in East and West Germany and political meaning and consequences of the German Reunification.
a look back to December 2019
2019's visits before Christmas took place between December 2 and December 18, 2019. In total, more than 750 students from 23 schools and 4 different states came to the Goethe-Institut Chicago during that time. Fitting the theme of the peaceful revolution, they learned about the 30th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, the division of Germany, and the Berlin Airlift. We want to thank our visitors for the great interest in our program. We had lots of fun during this time!
