The Goethe-Institut is the cultural institute of the Federal Republic of Germany with a global reach. With 159 institutes in 98 countries, it promotes knowledge of German abroad, encourages international cultural exchange and conveys an image of contemporary Germany. The Goethe-Institut’s ties with partner institutions in many other places give it about 1,000 points of contact around the world.

Language Classes: 

The Goethe-Institut New York offers classes from the beginner level to more advanced learners. Our courses are fully immersive and hands-on. This allows students to immediately communicate in German in authentic situations and stay motivated in the learning process. Our teachers receive a high quality training to make sure every learner can achieve their best results.

For young learners (12-17) the Goethe Institut is offering 3 different class levels for beginners: A1.1, A1.2, A1.3. All three classes take place Tuesdays and Thursdays from 4PM – 5:45PM and last 10 weeks.

Summer Courses are mainly for grown-ups (17+), but can be attended by teenagers with their parents’ permission

In addition to addressing different learner types, we offer different formats like face-to-face, online and blended courses. If none of these options fit, we arrange for individual instruction tailored towards individual language goals.

Along with our courses, we offer internationally recognized language exams and we work in partnership with certified examination centers throughout the United States. All our services are available for business clients as well. Ask us about special offers.

After School Programs

For kids below 12 we offer after school programs in cooperation with schools. The classes can be initiated by schools or parent groups.


The Goethe-Institut New York offers a large library of German books including a book section for children. Membership is $10 per year.


Throughout the year the Goethe Institut offers a wide variety of cultural events.

Study Bridge (Studienbrücke)

Germany is one of the three most popular places to study for foreign students. This is hardly surprising: higher education institutions in Germany offer the highest academic standards – and as such are the perfect springboard for a successful career at home or worldwide. The Goethe-Institut’s Studienbrücke program is specifically designed to prepare students from abroad wishing to embark directly on a course of study in Germany.
