We strongly recommend that you learn German, even if you can get by with just English at the University. You will find your day-to-day needs much easier when you can speak some German, for instance, at the bakery, when buying tickets or dealing with bureaucracy. It also makes it easier for you (and your family) to get to know the country and its people.
You can already learn German in your home country as part of your preparation for relocation, or you can complete an intensive language course after your arrival in Göttingen.
