Goethe Society WA

Sprechen Sie Deutsch?

Knowledge of the German language can open up new opportunities and experiences for you: it is the most widely spoken language in Europe; Germany is a commercial powerhouse of the European Union; and German-speaking artists, writers, composers, philosophers and scientists have played a major role in shaping our society for centuries.

So whether conversing with German business partners, listening to Mozart, nestling in bed with a book by Goethe or Grass, or simply ordering a drink in a Munich beer garden, German has endless advantages. 

 

Our classes are taught exclusively by experienced instructors who are native speakers of German and cater for everyone from beginners to advanced.
