COURSE DESCRIPTION: Blended Learning
How does it work?
The “face-to-face lessons” take place once a week online on Adobe Connect or Zoom. You will learn in a group of 10 to 18 students. During the online units, you will work on your computer using the Goethe-Institut’s interactive learning platform. You can individually and flexibly decide when and where you want to learn. With the help of professional, multimedia exercises and the latest learning methods, you will practice your reading, writing, and listening comprehension skills in German.
You will work on individual and group assignments. You can personally interact with other students in the course via chat or in forums.
The scope and content of the curriculum corresponds to that of our classroom based courses:
For A1.1, A1.2, A1.3 or A1.4: the 32 lesson units are divided into 16 “face-to-face” teaching units or live sessions on Adobe Connect/Zoom and 16 online teaching units.
For A2.1, A2.2, B1.1, B1.2, C1.1 and C1.2: the 64 lesson units are divided into 32 “face-to-face” teaching units or live sessions on Adobe Connect/Zoom and 32 online teaching units. The courses last 8 weeks.
A German teacher will personally support you for the entire duration of the course. This teacher will give you new assignments and regular feedback on your progress.
