German Language Classes
Although it may be possible to communicate in English within the academic context of the university environment, it can be helpful in daily life to have some basic knowledge of German. Being able to communicate in German will help you get the most out of living here. It is certainly worthwhile to take an intensive language course upon arrival in Germany.
Besides learning German in your home country, you can learn German at the University of Göttingen, Institut für Interkulturelle Kommunikation (IIK), the Goethe-Institut, the Volkshochschule or private institutes.
