Einstufungstest (placement exam)

We recommend completing an Einstufungstest (placement exam) to determine which level would be the best fit based on your previous German knowledge.

The placement exam consists of 3 separate parts, as well as an independent answer sheet “Einstufungstest Antwortblatt.”

  • You will need to print out the placement test and answer sheet and fill out the answer sheet by hand. Once you've completed the test, scan the answer sheet to your computer and email the completed file to It is important that all your answers are written to the “Einstufungstest Antwortblatt,” as this is the only  file we will review.
  • Please start with the file “Einstufungstest Teil A” and proceed to the file “Einstufungstest Teil B,” if you feel confident. Finish the test with the file “Einstufungstest Teil C”. The questions become increasingly harder with each section. If you find yourself guessing most of the answers, feel free to stop and submit what you were able to finish. 
  • We will evaluate the placement test within 2-3 business days and contact you via email with the results.

If you cannot attend a traditional classroom course at the Goethe-Zentrum Atlanta, distance learning through an online course is also a possibility. If you are unsure which course is best suited for you, we will gladly discuss the various options. Please contact our Language Program Director at  404-892-2388 or

We look forward to welcoming you in one of our language classes soon!

Regular Courses
We offer a variety of Regular Courses, each with with a 10-week duration. Because we understand that our students are busy people and are not always able to attend a full 10-week session, we also offer the opportunity to enroll in the first 5 weeks or last 5 weeks of each course. These courses follow the Goethe Institut curriculum for the corresponding level. 


Intensive Courses
For students looking to learn German at an accelerated rate, we offer Intensive Courses. These are designed for students to complete all four sub-sections of a level with concentrated lessons twice per week.


Specialized Courses - Skill Practice
Our specialized courses focus on one or two specific skills such as conversation, grammar, or business. These courses vary from quarter to quarter and we welcome suggestions for topics from our students.
