Blended Learning Intensive/Standard Courses (18th April - 29th Juni)

For those of you looking for the most face-to-face time with other students and our teachers, this is your best option. Our Blended Learning Courses consist of 50% virtual online group meetings, and 50% flexible online learning, guided and monitored by your tutor. With our sophisticated virtual classroom platform, online live meetings can be just as interactive as meeting at the institute. The group meetings will take place online until in-person classes can continue safely at the Goethe-Institut.
Online Group Courses (25th May - 29th Juni)
These courses are designed to run online for the full duration of each level, and they are more intensive than Blended Learning Intensive/Standard Online Courses. There are three virtual online group meetings and you will be working more independently in this format compared to Blended Learning Courses. Nonetheless, your progress is monitored closely and you will be well supported by your teacher throughout the whole course.

Examinations from 23rd of March 2020 onwards are temporarily posponed. As soon as the Goethe-Institut is in a position to offer regular examinations again, alternative dates will be published.
Please email learngerman-melbourne@goethe.de
/ learngerman-sydney@goethe.de  for any questions. Stay tuned - we will announce the next exam dates on our website, newsletter and our social media channels.


Previously booked courses for term 2 can be cancelled free of charge. Another option is to choose an online course or use the credit for tem 3.
