Find it in FRM: German classes in FRM

FrankfurtRheinMain has many options available to learn German or to brush up or improve your language skills. We have composed a selection of the major providers of German classes for you.

Adult Education Centres (Volkshochschule)

Adult Education Centres (Volkshochschule) are the most well-known provider of educational programmes with a wide range of courses, including German as a foreign language. Here, you will gradually achieve different language proficiency levels in certified classes. Often you can also attend intensive courses that take place over a short period of time. Since Adult Education Centres are publicly funded, the costs are relatively low. You can find German lessons at local Adult Education Centres using the course search menu at the VHS-Kursfinder.

You can also use the free online portal "Ich will Deutsch lernen" provided by the Adult Education Centres. This portal offers virtual German classes from level A1–B1.


You can choose from different German courses at the Goethe-Institut e. V. in Frankfurt am Main depending on whether you'd like to take an intensive, evening or weekend course, prepare for a test or need to learn German specific to your profession. The courses are divided by level, and are internationally recognised and comparable. As the Goethe-Institut exists all over the world, you can take your first class while abroad and then continue learning once you have arrived in Germany.

The Goethe-Institut also offers free German practice online.

Additional providers

Of course, there are many other providers of German courses. The large choice can become confusing, especially as there are both public and private courses for language training at very different prices. In order to make the right decision for you please compare the content and the benefits of each German course. Make sure that the course includes language assessment, which is a final examination that is considered proof of qualification. This will be the case for example if the course follows the guidelines of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR). The course provider should be able to certify this.

German classes for children and adolescents

Children and adolescents having another mother tongue than German are offered special language lessons in schools and Kindergarten. Good German skills are very important for your child – it is the only way for them to succeed at school.

If your child is in Kindergarten, they will take a language test before they begin Primary School in order to provide them with the correct support. If your child has already begun school, support and language-learning classes are available to assist them before switching to regular classes.

For more information about how to sign up your child for school please check the official website of the Federal Office for Migration and Refugees (BAMF) and contact your local school authority in FRM.

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. You can also find information on this on the official website of the Federal Office for Migration and Refugees.

Questions? Feel free to contact us at any time. Our team speaks many languages and would be happy to help you.
