Individualized & Small Group Instruction

At the Goethe-Zentrum Atlanta we strive to design curriculum that best fits the needs of our diverse learners. We offer students the opportunity of individualized instruction with our dedicated instructors to better accommodate learning styles, pace, and interests.

Individual and Small Group Instruction times are flexible. Our instructors are generally available Monday through Saturday from mornings to evenings.

Individual instruction:

The main benefits of one-on-one instruction are:

  • you can conveniently set your own schedule (frequency/intensity)

  • you will progress at your own pace

  • your instructor can adjust course content according to your specific needs and interests

Individual instruction allows us to tailor the material and approaches specifically for a student's needs, including level, goals, and learning styles. We can also accommodate multiple students of similar ages and levels as small group instructions (2-3 students).

Small group instruction is ideal for siblings, parents, children or spouses with similar levels of knowledge to advance their German language skills. We limit these sessions to a maximum of three pupils working closely with one of our instructors.

Setting up Individual/Small Group Instruction

  • By default, we hold classes at the Goethe-Zentrum, conveniently located in Midtown Atlanta. Classes can be held at a different location or through online distance learning, only after consultation with our Language Program Director.
  • Once we have worked with you to determine your proficiency level and goals, and the intensity and frequency of classes has been determined, the Goethe-Zentrum will assign an instructor who will contact you to schedule your first session.
  • We ask that in case of cancellation of any scheduled session, a minimum of 24-hours notice is to be given. Last-minute cancellations may incur a fee of up to one hour (60 minutes) of instruction.
  • For an ongoing program, participants are asked to pre-pay for classes in increments of at least 10 contact hours, unless a lower total number of hours is requested beforehand. Once the pre-paid hours are depleted, we will contact you to renew.


  • $55.00 per 60 minutes of instruction for members of the Goethe-Zentrum (1-on-1); $75.00 for non-members
  • $80.00 per 60 minutes of instruction for members of the Goethe-Zentrum (2-on-1); $100.00 for non-members

For a personalized consultation please contact our Language Program at (404) 892-2388 or e-mail

Please note: We require that both the instructor and the Goethe-Zentrum Atlanta be informed of all cancellations or changes to any scheduled session a minimum of 24 hours before the time of the session. In case of last-minute cancellations and/or changes with notice of less than 24 hours, we reserve the right to charge to your account up to one hour (60 minutes) of instruction for cases in which your instructor is unduly inconvenienced, such as for having already traveled to the class location or for not being able to teach another class and thereby suffering reduced income.
