The Goethe-Institut is Germany’s cultural institute, active worldwide. It promotes the study of German abroad and encourages international cultural exchange.
Goethe-Institut Namibia aims to promote the German language through language classes and courses for teachers of ‘German as a Foreign Language’. Furthermore, the institute fosters intercultural co-operation between Namibia and Germany through cultural programmes, as well as the multimedia library that mediates a modern and complete picture of all fields of life in Germany.
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the Goethe-Institute library is open to the public for browsing and returning content, but long stays are not allowed. Users can also select items online, book via email at [email protected] and collect at reception.
Registration is open for German language courses in face-to-face, online and blended learning formats. Afrikaans and Oshiwambo courses are only available face-to-face.
The Goethe-Institut Namibia office is open from 09:00 to 17:30 on Mondays to Thursdays and from 09:00 to 14:00 on Fridays. Social distancing and mask-wearing are observed at all times.
