How you learn German with us

The Dallas Goethe Center offers German language courses to children, teens and adults of all ages. Students learn how to speak, read and write German and benefit from the unique cultural environment that the Dallas Goethe Center offers its students, members and friends.

Our German Language Courses are designed for beginners as well as advanced learners. The materials correspond to the levels of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) and range from A1 for beginners to C2 for language skills at the highest level.

For more information please contact Annika Sommer at or call 469.708.8342.

Youth Courses

Children’s (ages 4 and up) and teens’ courses offer a fun, yet academically challenging learning environment that stimulates conversation and social interactions with their peers and adults. Our younger students learn basic phrases and sentence structures which will help them when they visit Oma and Opa. They are introduced to beloved German children’s games and books. They learn about German traditions and German holidays.


Tuition for children courses per trimester: $275 for 12-week course


Children courses meet on Saturdays from 9:30am to 12pm.

Adult Courses

Adults build and improve their vocabulary and grammar and learn how to comfortably converse in German. Using recommended and approved textbooks, workbooks and online exercises as a guideline, instruction is tailored to the students’ language proficiency level. Common expressions are taught that would come in handy at business meetings, at restaurants, or in a philosophical discussion.


Tuition for adult courses: $350 for 12-week course (plus fee for text/workbook)


Adult courses meet on Saturdays from 9:15am to 12:30pm.
