The Goethe-Institut is the cultural institute of the Federal Republic of Germany with a global reach.

They promote knowledge of the German language abroad and foster international cultural cooperation. They convey a comprehensive picture of Germany by providing information on Germany's cultural, social and political life.

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

They draw on the rich variety of their many-faceted open society and Germany's lively culture. They combine the experiences and conceptions of their partners in Germany and abroad with their professional skills and engage in a dialogue rooted in partnership. In doing so, they 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.

They 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.
