Goethe Institute
In the interest of the safety of students, our partners, workers and employees of the Goethe-Institute Cairo, and based on the outstanding success of the language courses and the various activities offered online, courses and cultural events will continue to be offered online until the end of the current year, and attendance during the coming months will be limited to holding postponed examinations and organising some training workshops for a limited number of trainees within the framework of our cultural and training projects, taking into account the highest levels of safety measures. This decision comes in implementation of the principle announced by the Goethe Institute at the beginning of the crisis, which is that preserving public health comes first.
In the second half of this September, the institute will start working on holding postponed exams, which students registered for before the Corona pandemic, and cannot be submitted online to ensure the level of quality, guided by the successful experience in organising exams for students of the preparatory year programme eligible for university study in Germany during the month of June, Which took into account all the personal protection and safety measures.
You can enjoy the institute's home-learning offers on its official website. On Onleihe, you can find German films, music and books for free. All information is readily available on the Corona page. The Goethe Institutewebsite is at
