The Goethe-Institut is the cultural institute of the Federal Republic of Germany with a global reach.
We promote knowledge of the German language abroad and foster international cultural cooperation. We convey a comprehensive picture of Germany by providing information on Germany's cultural, social and political life.

Through our network of Goethe-Institutes, Goethe Centres, cultural societies and reading rooms, alongside our examination and language learning centres, we perform the principal tasks of cultural and educational policy abroad. We work in partnership with public and private cultural bodies, the German federal states and municipalities, and the corporate sector.

We draw on the rich variety of our many-faceted open society and Germany's lively culture. We combine the experiences and conceptions of our partners in Germany and abroad with our professional skills and engage in a dialogue rooted in partnership. In doing so, we function as service providers and partners for everyone taking an active interest in Germany and the German language and culture, and act independently with no political affiliations.

We face the cultural policy challenges of globalisation and develop innovative concepts for a world made more human through mutual understanding, where cultural diversity is seen as an asset.

One important goal of the Goethe-Institut Singapore is to promote international cultural cooperation by organizing a broad variety of events to present German culture.

The Goethe-Institut Singapore offers workshops and teacher training seminars for teachers of German as a second language, and also provides an extensive examination program at our institute. Learning about German life and culture is an integral part of our language courses.

The information centre of the Goethe-Institut Singapore serves as a resource for those interested in contemporary Germany, and for those interested in teaching and studying German as a foreign language. More than 10,000 books, videos, audio-cassettes and computer software are available. In addition, we offer a directory of related WWW-Servers.
