German Language and Culture in North Texas

The Dallas Goethe Center is an institution dedicated to fostering German language and culture in North Texas. Founded in 1965, it 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 examinationsEverybody may take their exam(s) with us, no matter where or how you learned German. We are planning on administering exams on February 18June 10 and October 10, 2017 (registration deadline: 4 weeks prior to the exam date).
