Goethe for the millions

In India, the Goethe-Institut is implementing the project German in 1,000 Schools.

GERMAN IN 1,000 SCHOOLS. German being taught by a thousand teachers at Indian schools by the year 2017 – that is the goal the Goethe-Institut has been pursuing in India since 2011. Three hundred schools have since joined the project. Two years ago, the ministry responsible decided to introduce a foreign language into the curriculum, in addition to the official languages Hindi and English. The language chosen was German.
