50% of a blended learning course consists of independent online learning.

You will have access to our online platform where you will find the online part of your selected course. This online part contains motivating and diverse exercises, flash cards to reinforce vocabulary and summaries of all key grammar structures and phrases that you learn during the course.

Your online tutor gives you weekly assignments that you complete flexibly at your own pace over the course of the week. These tasks prepare you for the weekly classroom sessions where you meet with your classmates. Most online activities are carried out individually. There are also a few types of interactive exercises where you take part in discussions with your learning group on the online platform. These group activities include, for example, smaller texts about your hobbies, interests or forthcoming events. Here you also take part in group discussions and comment on the texts of your learning partners.
We provide all course resources required for the blended courses online free of charge.

The blended learning courses at the levels B 1.2, B 2.1 and higher are based on textbooks. We provide lots of digital resources. If you prefer, you can also purchase the print edition of the textbook concerned.
