Learn German online

Is the closest Goethe-Institut too far away for you? Do you prefer studying alone? Or, are you simply looking for a more flexible learning experience? We developed various German online courses to cater to all your needs.

Live Sessions

Learn German in live sessions with your tutor and classmates. As conference tools, we use Zoom and Adobe Connect. You will study online in your virtual classroom just as you would in a regular lesson. For your oral and written assignments, you will receive individual feedback from your tutor.

Blended Learning Course

Would you like to have greater flexibility to choose the learning times that work for you?
