Online Learning

Continue learning German – online. To protect your health, we decided to provide all our German language courses online temporarily. You can learn with your teacher in live sessions and also use the online platform to practise.

Dates and Prices

Independent Working

Learn independently at our learning platform using teaching material about everyday life. You can organise your online tasks flexibly and receive automatic feedback. We offer this for every level and all language learning needs.


Live Sessions

Learn in virtual live sessions together with your tutor and classmates. When practising speaking or writing you receive individual feedback from your tutor.



Your tutor will guide you through the conference tool and learning platform. You receive regular individual feedback throughout the course. If you have questions, you can contact the language course office.

Blended Learning Course

For all those who like balance: 50% face-to-face sessions, 50% online practise

A blended learning course offers you the best of both worlds. At the computer you will practice your reading, writing and listening skills and closely interact with other students in forums. During your lessons at the Goethe-Institut you will apply what you have learned and practice your conversation and pronunciation skills.
Our blended learning course is as flexible as you need it to be. Classroom sessions take place once a week. Allow for about 4 extra hours per week for your online studies and homework.
Whether you are at home, work or university - all you need for the blended learning course is a computer or notebook with internet connection. A lot of the exercises are also available to use on your smartphone.
Your teacher will be available to answer your questions by e-mail, chat, forum or in person during your lessons at the Goethe-Institut. You will also receive regular feedback about your online assignments to ensure that you are on track with your studies.

Blended Learning Standard Courses face to face and online (13th July - 26th September)

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 or face to face 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 (20th July - 17th August)
These courses are designed to run online for the full duration of each level, and they are more intensive than Blended Learning Standard Online Courses.
