Student Reviews / Testimonials:

Picture of Top German Language Courses in Germany with the Goethe-Institut•  "In England I spent seven years learning German – with modest success. Since I started learning at the Goethe-Institut in Freiburg, I’ve come a long way in just a few weeks."
Katherine, UK

•  "I'm taking the course 'German plus Internship'. In my home country I'm still studying and after that I want to work. I think that it is better for my career to do an internship in Germany first before I look for a job. After the course I'm going back to my home country."
Chiharu, Japan

•  "For me the Goethe-Institut, with the intensive instruction and the cultural and leisure program, offers the best opportunity to learn Geman.

The fact that the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) keeps sending its scholarship students to the Goethe-Institut to learn German underscores the quality of the teaching"

Andrés, Peru
