The Goethe-Institut offers German courses around the world.
You can learn the German language at levels A1–C2 at the Goethe-Institut in Hanoi and in Ho Chi Minh City.
German can also be taken as a subject at some Vietnamese schools. A number of partnerships also exist between Vietnamese and German schools. This programme is funded by the “Schools: Partners for the Future” (PASCH) initiative launched by the Central Agency for Schools Abroad (ZfA).
