Due to the directives issued by the Federal Department of Public Health (BAG) and  the Canton of Basel-City, courses will have to stop until further notice.

This concerns ALL GGG Language Courses in the Wepf building (Eisengasse 5) and in the GKG and deWette schools.

The measures will remain in force provisionally until April 19, 2020.

Please refer to THIS website for latest information.

Important addresses:

It is not yet clear when and how the missing lessons can be made up. This applies as well to course fees already paid. We will make every effort to find a solution acceptable to all parties.

The Committee of the GGG Courses, the Director and all teachers are counting on your understanding in this extraordinary situation.

We wish you good health and hope we can soon resume teaching.


All courses began in the week of January 13, 2020.

New courses from August 10, 2020.

The GGG ("Gesellschaft für das Gute und Gemeinnützige") has been committed to promoting language learning in education and further education in the Basel area for more than 200 years. Good language and communication skills are prerequisites to integrating into and feeling at home in new surroundings.

The benefits of speaking and understanding a language are many:from helping you to meet people and make contacts, enhancing personal and professional development, boosting self-confidence when dealing with government offices, to enriching you when you travel.

The GGG language courses are "different"

  • because they are very reasonably priced
  • because there is no exam pressure

The GGG offers language courses of high quality to native German speakers and speakers of other languages from beginner/basic level (A1) to advanced conversation /proficient user/mastery level (C2) in daytime and evening courses.

Tailor-made courses for businesses and other institutions are available on request and can be arranged with us at short notice.
