Goethe-Institut Irland Online Survey

We are currently running a short online survey and would love to hear your thoughts on how we communicate with you. Please take our survey and let us know what works well and not so well; and if there is anything we could or should do differently.
The survey includes 10 questions and should take no longer than 5 minutes to complete. The responses will only be used for our own information and to improve our communications with you.

To say thanks, we are giving away five book parcels, each containing three books by German authors. The books have been selected for you by our wonderful colleagues in the Goethe-Institut’s Library in Merrion Square, Dublin. (We can also offer English translations of these books for the winners if that is preferred.)

We would love to hear from you, and would be delighted if you could participate in the survey.
To take the survey, please click the link below. It will remain open until 16 June 2021.

*To enter the prize draw, simply enter your email address at the end of the survey. We will only use the email addresses to notify the winners of the draw; we will not use the data for any other purpose and will not retain the data beyond the duration of the survey. If you do not wish to enter the prize draw, you do not need to enter your email address.
