Our Course Formats
How the course works
You will attend weekly lessons by your teacher. There you will also have the opportunity to meet your fellow classmates.
One part of the course is dedicated to self-study, where you have the chance to study at a time that suits you. You will be working through varied exercises on our modern learning platform.
Support from your teacher
The teacher gives you individual feedback on your exercises and is available to answer questions.
Test your german
Are you taking one of our German courses for the first time? The placement test enables us to find out what previous knowledge you have, define a learning objective and help you select an appropriate course.
Frequently Asked Questions
You will learn just as much in a blended learning course as in one of our fully face-to-face courses. The three hours of learning per week are divided into two parts:
- 90 minutes a week of live group classes
- 90 minutes of independent online learning
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 portion of the course. This section includes engaging learning activities, online flash cards to study vocabulary, and summary explanations of all important grammatical structures and phrases you will encounter.
Your instructor will assign weekly exercises intended to be completed at your own pace within a given week. These exercises will prepare you for the online live sessions in which you will meet with your classmates.
You will complete most online activities individually, but they will also include interactive tasks where you will engage with the entire learning group. These group activities may include posting about your hobbies, interests or upcoming events while also interacting with classmates by leaving comments on their posts.
All required course materials for your blended learning course will be made available online free of charge.
Your course will have 6-16 students.
In case of cancellation, the following fees apply:
a) Up to 4 weeks before beginning of course 10% of course fee,
b) Up to 1 week before beginning of course 20% of course fee,
c) Up to 1 day before beginning of course 30% of course fee,
d) After course begins 100% of course fee.
You should consider your personal commitments and circumstances before enrolment, as we regret that no fees are refundable once the course has started.
We reserve the right to cancel classes with fewer than 10 students up to 24 hours before a course is due to start. In this case we will give you a full refund of the course fee paid. No other costs except the course fee will be refunded.
All students who attend at least 70% of their classes, and (for courses with an online component) complete at least 70% of their assignments will receive a certificate of participation for their course.
Also, we prepare and encourage you to sign up for one of our official Goethe-Zertifikat exams, which will provide you with an internationally-recognised certificate to prove your language abilities. Course participants will be able to take an exam for a discounted rate.
