German Language and Culture in North Texas

The Dallas Goethe Center, a nonprofit educational and cultural arts organization, dedicates its services to advancing German culture and language in North Texas.

Founded in 1965, the Dallas Goethe Center serves the community by developing an appreciation and understanding of German art, drama, music, language, literature and history, and cultivates mutual understanding between the people of German speaking countries and those of the United States of America. Throughout the year we support musical performances, exhibitions, a German film series, lectures and other cultural and educational programs.

German language classes are offered 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. In May 2015, we entered a partnership with the Goethe-Institut, Germany's official cultural institute, which allows us to offer their highly-rated and worldwide acknowledged language examinations. Learn more about our language programs HERE.

The Dallas Goethe Center invites individuals, families, organizations and corporations to join us in fostering German culture in North Texas. Learn more about membership HERE.


The next semester starts August 20, 2016.
As usual, we will offer level courses for beginning, intermediate and advanced students following the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) and standards set by the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (ACTFL). We welcome children, teens and adults to join us this fall.

NEW! We will offer the Goethe-Institut German language examinations on Sunday, September 11, 2016. They can be taken by students in our program as well as by external candidates.

More information on our upcoming courses and the examinations will be posted by mid-July. Curious to learn more right away? Just email us at
