There are many options available to learn German in FrankfurtRheinMain (FRM), or to brush up or improve your language skills To give you an overview, we have compiled a list of the most important providers of German courses.

Adult Education Centres (Volkshochschule)

Deutschkurse für Kinder und Erwachsene in Frankfurt RheinMain

Adult Education Centres (Volkshochschulen - VHS) are the most well-known provider of educational programmes with a wide range of courses, including German as a foreign language. Here, you can gradually achieve different language proficiency levels in certified courses. Quite often, you can also attend intensive courses which take place over a short period of time. Since Adult Education Centres are state-funded, the costs are relatively low. You can find German courses at centres in your vicinity using the course selection menu on the VHS-Kursfinder.

You can also use their free online service "Ich will Deutsch lernen" with online German courses from level A1 - B1.


At the Goethe-Institut e. V. in Frankfurt am Main, you can choose from different German courses depending on your needs. They offer intensive courses, evening and weekend courses, exam preparation and specific work-related German courses. The courses are divided into different levels, and are recognized world-wide. As the Goethe-Institut has branches in many countries all over the world, you can take your first course abroad and then continue in Germany without any problem.

The Goethe-Institut also offers free German practice online.

Other Providers

Of course, there are many other providers of German courses. It can be quite confusing, as public and private institutions offer courses at very different prices. Therefore, it is very important to compare the content and benefits of each individual course before making a decision. Make sure that the course includes a qualification at the end, as you will need proof of this. It will do so if it follows the guidelines of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR). Ask your course provider to confirm this.

German Courses for Children and Teenagers

Children and teenagers, whose mother tongue is not German, are offered special language lessons in school and Kindergarten. It is very important that your child has a good knowledge of German as that will enable them to do well at school.

If your child is still in Kindergarten, they will take a language test before they begin Primary School in order to provide them with the correct level of support. If your child has already begun school, they will be given additional support and specific language lessons to help them learn the language. Once they have finished these, they can switch to regular lessons.

More information on this can be found on the Federal Office for Migration and Refugees (BAMF) website and from your local school authority.

Teenagers who are no longer required to attend school, as well as all young adults up to the age of 27, can learn German in a special integration course. More information on this can also be found on the Federal Office for Migration and Refugees website.
