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.

We offer testing at our facility twice a year in April and November

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.
