On the Madrid Campus, we generally offer Elementary German I (GR 1010) and Elementary German II (GR 1150) in the fall-spring sequence. German is an important language for business, politics and tourism, as well as art and literature. With two semesters of German, you can expect basic to intermediate fluency and a solid foundation to build on during visits to Germany or at the local Goethe Institute.

Campus Events

Harry´s El Alemán, Deutscher Stammtisch: Order in German at this nearby German Kneipe, and develop conversation skills over beer, sausage, potatoes (Pommes) or even Sachertorte. Once a month, usually Thursday evenings, with your German professor.

OKTOBERFEST: In early October SLU-Madrid celebrates its own Oktoberfest where you can participate in a beer tasting, enjoy different varieties of sausage and pretzels, and finish off with a slice of exquisite apfelstrudel

Official Language Exams

When applying for a job, having an official certificate to corroborate the level of your language skills is increasingly important since university courses, even majors, are not always accepted as valid proof of language level.

The Goethe-Zertifikat is the oficial language exam for German. For information, dates and location of upcoming exams, go to and follow the instructions.
