Do you want to learn German and have high standards and expectations, but only have a limited amount of time? Are you used to learning on a computer, but don’t want to miss out on the advantages of a face-to-face classroom environment? Would you like to have greater flexibility to choose learning times that work for you?
See what our students have to say:
I took several blended classes at the Goethe-Institut because like most New Yorkers, I can't commit to a 3 hour class every week. So instead, I'd come 1.5h in person and get to exchange with my classmates in class once a week and also get useful explanations from the teacher about grammar or conjugation points etc. At home, I'd continue with my German learning, online, through the Goethe-Institut platform. The online platform is great because it gives you the flexibility to work from home or at the office, at a convenient time. Also it is very interactive and the online phase always offers opportunities to interact with other classmates. - Edith, B1.2, Winter 2019
The format of the blended classes are excellent. I really like how we learn some new material on our own before class, and then review what we've done at home at the beginning of the next class. It makes for really effective learning, and really efficient too -- everyone comes somewhat prepared, so that we can practice speaking a lot more! - A1.3 Student, Winter 2019
What does BLENDED LEARNING offer?Our BLENDED LEARNING courses combine the best of both worlds: intense face-to-face instruction and flexible online German lessons. Since this learning format is especially efficient, you will make major progress within just a short period of time. We offer BLENDED LEARNING courses for levels A1 through C1. Depending on the course, you can decide whether you would like to continue with the Blended Learning format or would prefer to switch to a traditional face-to-face course or a completely online course.
Blended Learning is an ideal option if you want to learn German quickly, but don’t have the time to come to a face-to-face course twice a week. It is also perfect for people who live far away from the Goethe-Institut, but don’t just want to learn online.
