Goethe Institut

"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.
The Goethe-Institut Hanoi has been founded in 1997 and is together with Shanghai the youngest institut in Asia. Its main intention is to foster the cultural exchange betweeen Vietnam, Germany and Europe. In this perspective, we organize a broad range of cultural activities, presenting German culture in Asia and intensifying the cultural dialogue between our countries.

Throughout the year, we offer courses of German as a Foreign Language for adults. In addition to this we organize workshops and methodological seminars for German Language teachers.

Our small media centre offers all kind of information about the cultural, social and political life in today’s Germany. This stock of books, magazines, newspapers, videos, CDs and DVDs in the centre serves all those who are interested in Germany and who want to learn or teach German."
