Due to the on-going situation surrounding COVID-19, we are not currently able to host exams at our center.

If you're needing an exam in the immediate future, we encourage you to visit the Goethe-Insitut Washington's website and see if their offerings fit your needs.

Please check back in January 2021 for more updates regarding examinations in Atlanta.

Do you need certification for work, study, or a visa? Would you like to know the level of your knowledge of German? We offer internationally recognized proficiency exams at our institute. 

The overview of Goethe-Institut examination and course levels offered can tell you which exam is appropriate for you. Detailed information on Goethe-Institut examinations and sample tests can be found on our central site.

Please note: The standard turnaround time for examination results and/or participation certificates is 6 business weeks after taking a Goethe-Institut Examination at the Goethe-Zentrum Atlanta. For November testing dates, delays in processing results may occur due to the Christmas holidays. 

We ask that you schedule your exam far enough in advance and to take the process times into consideration. We cannot expedite exam results to accommodate individual requests. Exam results are certified at our regional office before certificates are distributed.

Please contact our Language Program with specific questions or further assistance.
